"Over The Rainbow" lyrics - KRISTIN CHENOWETH

"Over The Rainbow"
(Harold Arlen / E.Y. "Yip" Harburg)

When all the world is a hopeless jumbo
And the raindrops tumble all around
Heaven opens a magic lane
When all the clouds open up the skyway
There's a rainbow highway to be found
Leading from your window pane
To a place beyond the sun
Just a step beyond the rain

[Chorus 1:]
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

[Chorus 2:]
Someday I wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
Way up 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?
