"Somewhere Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World" as written by and E Harburg 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 tops is where you'll find me
Somewhere over the rainbow blue birds fly
And the dreams that you dare to, oh why, 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 and 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 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
High above the chimney tops is where you'll find me
Somewhere over the rainbow way up high
And the dreams that you dare to, why, oh why can't I?
