Lyrics

Ooo oooooo oooooo oooo ooo ooo ooo
Ooooo oooooo oooooo
Ooo ooo ooo
Ooo ooo ooo

Somewhere, over the rainbow, way up high,
And the dreams that you dreamed of,
Once in a lullaby.

Oh, somewhere over the rainbow,
blue birds fly, And the dreams that you dreamed of,
Dreams really do come true.

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, bluebirds fly,
And the dreams that you dare to.
Oh why, oh why can't I?

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!

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 myself:
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, saying, '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!

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 dreams that you dare to,
Oh why, oh why can't I?

Ooooo oooooo oooooo
Ooooo oooooo oooooo
Ooo ah, ah, ah... eh ah ah, eh ah ah ah ah...

LOVE this song. I'm suggesting it for my fiances mother/son dance, but either way I will add it in my prelude set if they decide to not use it!

Love, love this song! Makes you feel peaceful and sad all at the same time

Diana&James says...
I love this song..... but the lyrics are more about how bad things are right now and how you want to get away from here.... not really the message i want to send out on my wedding day

Joseph says...
i see what you're saying, Diana&James, but you could also look at it as your wedding day being the result of the dreams coming true. the addition of the Wonderful World lyrics help to illustrate this. just my opinion :)

Tammy says...
I am walking down the aisle to this song. I am so on love with it and this version. Its perfect for me and my venue!!!
No one pays attention to the words..I love the song and its about me...

Teresa says...
My Fiance and I have been together for 9 years and we have an 18 month old son. I have always loved IZ and would like to have this song played sometime durring the wedding. What do you all think about it being the song my young son and I dance to????

Teresa says...

Anna  says...
