over the rainbow


As sung by Judy in the film
Someplace where there isn’t any trouble…
…do you suppose there is such a place, Toto?
There must be. It’s not a place you can get to by a boat or a train.
It’s far, far away…
Behind the moon
Beyond the rain
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 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?

【オズの魔法使い】の≪over the rainbow:虹の彼方に≫です。残念ながら日本語訳は手に入らなかった。英語が全くダメな私だから誰か訳してください!本でしか知らなかった小さな頃、このメロディがあればもっと空想の世界は広がったのかも知れないな。でもとにかく耳慣れた素適なメロディです!
