Over the rainbow / Somewhere Over the rainbow


是1939年電影綠野仙蹤內的一首歌曲。歌曲的旋律簡單,略顯哀傷;歌詞通俗易懂,表達一名10多歲的小女孩渴望逃脫世界「絕望的混亂」,從雨點的悲傷中走向嶄新的世界——「彩虹的彼端」。


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?


希望現在的香港也可以!
