We're Off To See The Wizard

Album: The Wizard Of Oz Soundtrack (1939)


  • Written in 6/8 time, and also known as "We're Off To See The Wizard (The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz)", this well-known song from the famous MGM musical has lyrics by E.Y. Harburg and music by Harold Arlen, and was arranged by Dan Coates. It appears in the film several times, including as an instrumental, but also as a duet, and a scene where a young Judy Garland as Dorothy and her three dysfunctional friends from the land over the rainbow march off to meet the Wizard. >>
