    Lyrics

    Ooooo oooooo ohoohohoo
    Ooooo ohooohoo oooohoo
    Ooooo ohoohooo oohoooo
    Oohooo oohoooho ooooho
    Ooooo oooooo oooooo
    Ooooo oooooo oooooo

    Somewhere over the rainbow
    Way up high
    And the dreams that you dreamed of
    Once in a lullaby
    Somewhere over the rainbow
    Blue birds fly
    And the dreams that you dreamed of
    Dreams really do come true ooh ooooh

    Someday I'll wish upon a star
    Wake up where the clouds are far behind me ee ee eeh
    Where trouble melts like lemon drops
    High above the chimney top thats where you'll find me oh
    Somewhere over the rainbow
    Blue birds fly
    And the dream that you dare to,why, oh why can't I?

    Well I see trees of green and red roses too
    I watch them bloom for me and you
    And I think to my self
    what a wonderful world

    Well I see skies of blue, and I see clouds of white
    and the brightness of day, I like the dark
    And I think to my self
    what a wonderful world

    The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
    Are also on the faces of people passing by
    I see friends shaking hands
    Singing, "How do you do?"
    They're really saying, I...I love you
    I hear babies cry and I watch them grow,
    They'll learn much more
    Than we'll know
    And I think to myself
    What a wonderful world (w)oohoorld

    Someday I'll wish upon a star,
    Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
    Where trouble melts like lemon drops
    High above the chimney top that's where you'll find me
    Oh, Somewhere over the rainbow way up high
    And the dream that you dare to, why, oh why can't I? I hi

    Ooooo oooooo oooooo
    Ooooo oooooo oooooo
    Ooooo oooooo oooooo
    Ooooo oooooo oooooo
    Ooooo oooooo oooooo
    Ooooo oooooo oooooo

      When I first heard this song was in the movie "
      First 50 Dates" it so soft and beautiful. Me and my fiance simply love this song and have chosen to play it while we get married in Las Vegas in the Little White Chapel.
