Over The Rainbow Lyrics

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?

This has always been my favorite song but a few years ago I discovered a new meaning. It is about Heaven. A place beyond the rainbows with no troubles, where skies are always blue, where it is perfect

Yeah, it is about heaven, if you think about. I love singing this song, although I need to work on pace and pitch!

I think the slow speed gives the song more emotion. I like to sing the song at her pace. always gives me peace. Wish I could remember each note at the end 'cause I don't have sound. been awhile, too.
