Surrey with the Fringe on Top

English Lyrics


Pigs 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
Nosy-pokes'll peek through their shutters and their eyes
will pop!
The wheels are yellow, the upholstery's brown
the dashboard's genuine leather
With isinglass curtains you can roll right down
in case there's a change in the weather...

It's from the musical "Oklahoma!" It's recorded as part of a medly with "Oh, What a Beautiful Morning" in Yiddish on the album, "Music from the Yiddish Radio Project" and the words were written in the Yiddish by Miriam Kessyn.
