Lyrics

Original

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 dreams that you dare to dream Really do come true

Someday I'll 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'll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow, Bluebirds fly

Birds fly over the rainbow

Why then, oh, why can't I?

Somewhere over the rainbow, Bluebirds fly

Birds fly over the rainbow

Why then, oh, why can't I?

If happy little bluebirds fly, Beyond the rainbow

Why, oh why can't I?

Cover

Scarecrow: 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 (Tin-Man: skies are blue)

And the dreams that you dare to dream, really do come true...

Lion: Heh-heh, he's right!

Scarecrow: Someday I'll wish upon a star

And wake up where the clouds are far behind me

Goodbye clouds! (gasps)

Where troubles melt like lemon drops

Away above the chimney tops, that's where you'll find-

Mee-ugh.. Me!

Somewhere over the rainbow, blue birds fly

There they go now.

Birds fly over the rainbow, why, oh why can't I?

Tweet-tweet! Tell my mom I'll be right here!
