Troubles Melt Like Lemon Drops

music by Harold Arlen and lyrics by E.Y. Harburg

 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?
not sure why, but these lyrics have stayed in my head all week, I think some days we all would like to to fly somewhere over the rainbow.
Today is third day after treatment, not doing so well tonight.........
Wishing you all a place where skies are blue, and troubles melt like lemon drops.
Good night, Sweet dreams

  1. Just read your husbands post and he sounded in heaven blissfully eating away at the Apple Crisp you made. You sound, however, rather sad... ?

    Hope you feel better after a nice night's rest! ok?

    Little prayers going up for you. (hug)
