"Over the Rainbow" as written by E Y Harburg and Harold Arlen....
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 dream of, dreams 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,
High above the chimney top,
That's where you'll find me.

Somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds fly
And the dream that you dare to
Why, oh why can't I?

I see trees of green, red roses too
I watch them 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 brightness of day, I like the dark
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

The colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people passing by
I see friends shakin' hands, sayin' 'How do you do?'
They're really say I, I love you

I hear babies cryin', 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,
High above the chimney top,
That's where you'll find me.

Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
And the dream that you dare to
Why, oh why can't I?
