Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high

Where troubles melt like lemon drops

High above the chimney tops is where you’ll find me, oh

Well I see trees of green and red roses too

I’ll watch them bloom for me and you

And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

The colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky

Are also on the faces of people passing by
      C               G              C          G
I see friends shaking hands saying, “How do you do?”
C              G       Am7        D7
They’re really saying, “I, I love you!”

They’ll learn much more than we’ll know

And I think to myself, what a wonderful world - oh

Someday I’ll wish upon a star, wake up where the clouds are far behind me 
      G
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
