Over the rainbow
When the sun’s shining
And the sky’s blue
With you by my side
My world doesn’t end
Want to be your bride
Always together
We part and I cried

You make me happy
Only you and you
Adventures we flew
And we both agree
Through thick and through thin
On our shopping spree
Laughing as we ride
Playing seek and hide
