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?

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?

Team Review

  • seven years ago, i couldn’t even imagine that i would do a lyric video about my favourite song and that it would achieve such popularity. through Israel’s simple, yet incredibly powerful lyrics, his humbleness, kindness and sweetness serve as a token, an inspiration and a treasure for all of us. i hope you all have a wonderful day, thank you very much.
  • Is it possible to feel happiness and sadness at the same time while listening to this song.
  • The most magical thing about this recording is that the sound recorded over 30 years ago sounds like it could be released today, all thanks to just his voice and ukelele playing abilities.
  • What a great song to start the next chapter of my life. Adulthood is scary but I’ve been pushing forward. It’s almost been a year and I already miss my classmates. I’ve just been coming back to it whenever I wanna remember my old friends and the memories we made together. I cant get through 20 seconds without tears going down my eyes.
  • It’s like he sang this song for each and every person on the planet it feels so perfect. My perception is Like my big brother singing me to sleep. I can just feel all his love in his voice.
  • Such a beautiful human and singer, he will always be alive in our hearts
  • He’s the only one able to give confort to everyone who needs it with just a song He’s like the bestfriend who is always checking on you, like the mom watching you grow up silently, like the dad so proud of who you’ve become… I’ve been listening to this song regularly for years, and everytime my heart is filled with pure love and kindness, and I feel better after. The cute part is that my bf also listened to this song before we met, so it’s a little bit of “our” song (that’s why our relationship is so soft maybe)
  • his song reminds me of someone who I should not love but can’t help myself brings me to tears every time with some mixed and deep emotions I still stand and cry.
  • This song tells you all what life is truly about if you give it a chance there a lot of good things that will happen
  • “In 1988, Israel Kamakawiwo’ole called the recording studio at 3 A.M. and said he had to record a song right away. 15 minutes later, Israel arrived at the studio. The studio owner, Milan Bertosa said, “And in walks the largest human being I had seen in my life.” A security guard gave the 500-pound man a large steel chair to sit on. Milan said, “Then I put up some microphones, do a quick sound check, roll tape, and the first thing he does is Somewhere Over the Rainbow. He played and sang, one take, and it was over.”
  • He was the one, he was so gifted, his voice so perfect that we feel he is still with us. Just play the song and he comes back for us, again and again.
  • I’ve never heard this song until today. It’s truly a master piece this man had some great potential and very great talent. There’s not to many people out there that have a voice like his it was truly one of a kind. It’s hard to think that he had to go so young. But this song is truly touching to the heart to me and I know he’s still listening somewhere over the rainbow.
