    the artist of this song is called "Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwo'ole"

    and the song is called "somewhere over the rainbow"

    here are the lyrics:

    OK this one's for Gabby

    Ooooo oooooo ohoohohoo

    Ooooo ohooohoo oooohoo

    Ooooo ohoohooo oohoooo

    Oohooo oohoooho ooooho

    Ooooo oooooo oooooo

    Ooooo oooooo oooooo

    Somewhere over the rainbow

    Way up high

    And the dreams that you dreamed of

    Once in a lullaby ii ii iii

    Somewhere over the rainbow

    Blue birds fly

    And the dreams that you dreamed of

    Dreams really do come true ooh ooooh

    Someday I'll wish upon a star

    Wake up where the clouds are far behind me ee ee eeh

    Where trouble melts like lemon drops

    High above the chimney tops thats where you'll find me oh

    Somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly

    And the dream that you dare to,why, oh why can't I? i iiii

    Well I see trees of green and

    Red roses too,

    I'll watch them bloom for me and you

    And I think to myself

    What a wonderful world

    Well I see skies of blue and I see clouds of white

    And the brightness of day

    I like the dark and I think to myself

    What a wonderful world

    The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky

    Are also on the faces of people passing by

    I see friends shaking hands

    Saying, "How do you do?"

    They're really saying, I...I love you

    I hear babies cry and I watch them grow,

    They'll learn much more

    Than we'll know

    And I think to myself

    What a wonderful world (w)oohoorld

    Someday I'll wish upon a star,

    Wake up where the clouds are far behind me

    Where trouble melts like lemon drops

    High above the chimney top that's where you'll find me

    Oh, Somewhere over the rainbow way up high

    And the dream that you dare to, why, oh why can't I? I hiii ?

    Ooooo oooooo oooooo

    Ooooo oooooo oooooo

    Ooooo oooooo oooooo

    Ooooo oooooo oooooo

    Ooooo oooooo oooooo

    Ooooo oooooo oooooo
