The Surrey With The Fringe On Top

In the style of

Oklahoma (Movie Version)

Lyrics

when i take you out
tonight with me
honey here's the
way it's gonna be

you will sit behind a team
of snow white horses
in the slickest gig
you've ever seen

chicks and ducks and
geese will scurry
when i take you out
in the surrey

when i take you
out in the surrey
with the fringe
on top

watch that fringe and
see how it flutters
when i drive them
high-steppin' strutters

nosey folks'll peek
through their
shutters
and their eyes will pop

the wheels are yellow
the upholstery's brown
the dashboard's
genuine leather

with eisenglass curtains
you can roll right down
in case there's a
change in the weather

two bright side lights
winkin' and blinkin'
ain't no finer rig
i'm a-thinkin'

you can deep your rig
if you're thinkin'
that i'd care
to swap

for that shiny
little surrey
with the fringe
on the top

i can see the stars
gettin' blurry
when we ride back
home in the surrey

ridin' slowly home
in the surrey
with the fringe
on top

i can feel the day
gettin' older
feel a sleepy head
near my shoulder

noddin' droopin' close
to my shoulder
till it falls ker-plop

the sun is swimmin' on
the rim of the hill
the moon is takin'
a header

and just as i'm thinkin'
all the earth is still
a lark'll wake up
in the meadow

hush you bird my
baby's a-sleepin'
maybe got a dream
worth a-keepin'

whoa you team and
just keep a-creepin'
at a slow clip-clop

don't you hurry
with the surrey
with the fringe
on the top
