Over The Rainbow
The Wizard Of Oz, (1939)
Over The Rainbow
E.Y. Harburg (w), Harold Arlen (m)
The Wizard of Oz, 1939
VERSE
When all the world is a hopeless jumble
And the raindrops tumble all around,
Heavan 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.
CHORUS
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 dream that you dare to dream really do come true.
Some day I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the cloud 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?
REPEAT CHORUS
If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow, why oh why can't I?
