"Somewhere Over the Rainbow" as written by E Y Harburg and Harold Arlen....
Somewhere over the rainbow

(h. arlen/e.y. harburgh)

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 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 find me

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

(instrumental)

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

If happy little blue birds fly
Beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why, can't I
