The Surrey With A Fringe On Top

This song is by Rodgers and Hammerstein.

When I take you out, tonight, with me
Honey here's the way it's goin' to be
You will set behind a team of snow white horses
In the slickest gig you every see

Chicks and ducks and geese better scurry
When I take you out in the surrey
When I take you out in the surrey with the fringe on top
Watch the fringe and see how it flutters
When I drive them high steppin' strutters
Nosey pokes will peek thru their shutters and their eyes will pop
The wheels are yellow, the upholstery's brown
The dashboard's genuine leather
With isinglass curtain's you can roll right down in case there's a change in the weather
Two bright sidelights winking and blinking
Ain't no finer rig I'm a thinking
You can keep your rig if you thinking that I'd care to swap
Fer that shiny surrey with the fringe on the top!

All the world will fly in a flurry
When I take you out in the surrey,
When I take you out in the surrey with the fringe on top

When we hit that road, hell for leather, cats and dogs will dance in the heather
Birds and frogs will sing all together and the toads will hop!
The wind will whistle as we rattle along.
The cows will moo in the clover
The river will ripple out a whispered song,
And whisper it over and over.
Don't you wish you'd go on forever
Don't you wish you'd go on forever
Don't you wish you'd go on forever and you'd never stop
In that shiny little surrey with the fringe on the top!

I can see the stars getting blurry
When we drive back home in the surrey
Driving slowly home in the surrey with the fringe on top!
I can feel the day getting older,
Feel a sleepy head on my shoulder
Noddin' droopin' close to my shoulder, till it falls kerplop!
The sun is swimmin on the rim of a hill
the moon is takin' a header
And just as I'm thinkin' all the earth is still, a lark will make up in the medder
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!
