Over the Rainbow

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald and appears on the album Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Harold Arlen Song Book (1961).

When all the world is a hopless jumble
And the raindrops tumble all around
Heaven opens a magic lane

When all the clouds darken up the skyway
There's a rainbow highway to be found
Leading from your window pane

To a place behind the sun
Just a step beyond the rain

Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
There's a land that I heard of
Once in a lullabye

Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream
Really do come true

Someday day 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?

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?

If happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why can't I?
