somewhere over the rainbow

I have the worst singing voice. Even in a large group, you can hear my awful singing voice, it’s that terrible! I also only know two “real” songs (not kiddy songs) all the way thru by heart, Nice and slow by usher and Over the rainbow from Wizard of Oz. I don’t know how or why I remember these two songs, but there they are in my memory. A couple of weeks ago, Baby J was fussing and the usual shhhh was not doing it, so I started to sing to her. Yep, Somewhere over the rainbow, and she instantly quieted. I couldn’t believe it. She even smiled at me. Now whenever she is fussy, for whatever reason, I sing that song and she is instantly silent. I rock her to sleep at least twice a day singing on that song. She doesn’t mind my horrible voice, and I don’t mind making a fool of myself singing it to her. I love her. She is mine and I am her rainbow!

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?
