Performances (231)

When all the world is a hopeless 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 windowpane
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
And somewhere, over the rainbow, skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true

Some day I’ll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me
And troubles melt like lemon drops away above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me

Somewhere, over the rainbow bluebirds fly
If birds can fly over the rainbow
Why, oh then why can't I?

Someday I’ll wake and rub my eyes
And in that land beyond the skies
You’ll find me
I’ll be a laughing daffodil
And leave the silly cares that fill my mind behind me

Somewhere, over the rainbow, bluebirds fly
If birds can 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?
