When all the world is a hopeless jumble
And the raindrops tumble all around
Heaven opens a magic place
When all the clouds darken 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
Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high,
There’s a place 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?
If happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why can’t I?

As a special treat, we’re very happy to share a video from our Somewhere Over The Rainbow recording session.
