Over the Rainbow Written by: E.Y. Harburg Composed by: Harold Arlen Sung by: Judy Garland Power Point By: Hannah Spinner 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 yo

u dare to dreamReally 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 topsThat's w here 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? Written by: E.Y. Harburg
