Somewhere, looking like Bozo

Today’s Zippy, with another song burlesque from the ventriloquist’s dummy, last heard from singing “The House of the Writhing Pun”:

Yes, “Over the Rainbow”, taking shots at Donald Trump.

The first verse of the original (words by Harold Arlen, lyrics by E.Y. Harburg, written for the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz, where it was sung by Judy Garland as Dorothy Gale):

Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
And the dreams that you dreamed of
Once in a lullaby

The Zippy take-off starts out fairly close to the original and then diverges substantially.
