Lyrics by E.Y. Harburg
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 window pane
To a place behind the sun,
Just a step beyond the rain.
Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high,
Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue,
Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me.
Away above the chimney tops,
That's where you'll find me.
Somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds fly.
If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow
