When all the clouds darken up the skyway
There's a rainbow highway to be found
Leading from your window pane
Just a step beyond the rain
Somewhere over the rainbow way up high
There's a land that I heard of once in a lullaby
Somewhere over the rainbow skies are blue
And the dreams the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true
Some day I'll wish upon a star and wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Mmm where troubles melt like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops that's where you'll find me
Somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow then why
Then oh why can't I?
If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow
Why oh why can't I?
