Surrey With the Fringe on Top

Music Richard Rodgers
Lyrics Oscar Hammerstein II

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 ever 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 that fringe and see how it flutters
When I drive them high steppin’ strutters.
Nosey pokes’ll peek thru’ their shutters and their eyes will pop!
(from the musical Oklahoma)
