Somewhere Over the Rainbow

When all the world is a hopeless jumble
and the raindrops tumble all around
Heaven opens a magic lane
When all the clouds darken up the skyway
There's a rainbow highway to be found
Leading from your window pane
To a place behind the sun
Just a step beyond the rain

Somewhere, over the rainbow way up high
There's a land that I've heard of once in a lullaby
Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream
really do come true

Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me
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,
Why then, oh why can't I?

If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow
Why oh why can't I?




Somewhere Over the Rainbow
Ding Dong! The Witch is Dead!
Lullabye League and Lollipop Guild
Follow the Yellow Brick Road
If I Only Had a Brain
If I Only Had a Heart
If I Only Had the Nerve
Optimistic Voices
Merry Old Land of Oz
If I Were King of the Forest
