Over the Blue

Over the Blue floral art design

Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high,
There's a land that I heard of
Once in a lullaby.

Campanula, rosary vine and cherry stem arch.

Somewhere over the rainbow
Skies are blue,
And the dreams that you dare to dream
Really do come true.

Blue rainbow.

Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far
Behind me.

Add a few rosary vine stems to curl over the rainbow.jpg

Where troubles melt like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me.

Tiny Campanula trumpets

Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly.
Birds fly over the rainbow.
Why then, oh why can't I?

Place the arch over an upturned vase.

If happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why can't I?

Over The Rainbow was written by Harold Arlen and lyrics by E.Y. Harburg and was sung by actress Judy Garland for the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz
