Rainbows & Bluebirds

This song has been playing in my head for a few days now. You know it well, and perhaps some of you see it as an IF anthem of sorts. Here it is:

Over The 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

Some day I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where troubles melt like lemondrops
Away above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me

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

It has me thinking: we all know the story about the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. This song says it's somewhere over the rainbow.

My question is this: Where is that wicked, wicked witch that moved the gold without telling us?

So true!! The nerve of that witch!

Exactly right! Apparently she's hidden it somewhere were only fertiles and crack whores can find it. (wait...did I just say that out loud?)

Needles said...

yeah damnit....someone hit the pot and here we are crawling around like frantic losers trying to find it. And we're gonna find it alright....WE WILL FIND IT!!!!
Have to say I hate the song though...

How nice to find a South African blogger. Thank you for your comment, I'll definitely be back.

No idea who the witch is, or what she did with that pot of gold but I second Needles, WE WILL FIND IT!!! (and I am also not a big fan of the song).

I have been thinking about this song alot -espcially since it is a commercial for something now.

Your title reminded of a song i think of in my head about IF " It’s not always rainbows and butterflies
It’s compromise that moves us along
My heart is full and my door’s always open
You can come anytime you want" by Maroon 5's song "She will be Loved" also. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us
