Lyrics

Lyrics

Somewhere over the rainbowWay up high,There's a land that I heard ofOnce in a lullaby.Somewhere over the rainbowSkies are blue,And the dreams that you dare to dreamReally do come true.Someday I'll wish upon a starAnd wake up where the clouds are farBehind me.Where troubles melt like lemon dropsAway above the chimney topsThat's where you'll find me.Somewhere over the rainbowBluebirds fly.Birds fly over the rainbow.Why then, oh why can't I?If happy little bluebirds flyBeyond the rainbowWhy, oh why can't I?

Written by: E.Y. HarburgComposed by: Harold ArlenSung by: Judy Garland
