Somewhere over the rainbow way up high
And the dreams that you dream of once in a lullaby
Somewhere over the rainbow blue birds fly
And the dreams that you dare to dream,
really do come true

Someday I’ll wish upon a star,
wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
Way high above the chimney tops is where you’ll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow, why then, oh why can’t I?

Well I see trees of green and red roses too,
I’ll watch then bloom for me and you
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

Well I see skies of blue and I see clouds of white
The bright blessed the day – the dark sacred night
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

The colours of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people passing by
I see friends shaking hands saying, ‘How do you do?’
They’re really saying, ‘I, I love you’

I hear babies cry and I watch them grow,
They’ll learn much more than we’ll know
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

Someday I’ll wish upon a star, wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
Way high above the chimney tops is where you’ll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow blue birds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow, why then oh why can’t I
