The Surrey With The Fringe On Top Lyrics

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!

The wheels are yellew, the upholstery's brown,
The dashboard's genuine leather,
With isinglass curtains y' can roll right down,
In case there's a change in the weather.

Two bright sidelight's winkin' and blinkin',
Ain't no finer rig I'm a-thinkin'
You can keep your rig if you're thinkin'
'at I'd keer to swap
Fer that shiny, little surrey
With the fringe on the top!

Did you say the fringe was made of silk
Wouldn't have no other kind but silk
Has it really got a team of snow white horses
One's like snow, the other's more like milk
So y' c'n tell then apart

All the world'll 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'll dance in the heather,
Birds and frogs'll sing all together
And the toads will hop!

The wind'll whistle as we rattle along,
The cows'll moo in the clover,
The river will ripple out a whispered song,
And whisper it over and over:

Don't you wisht y'd go on forever?
Don't you wisht y'd go on forever?
Don't you wisht y'd go on forever
And ud never stop
In that shiny, little surrey
With the fringe on the top!

I can see the stars gettin' blurry,
When we drive back home in the surrey,
Riding slowly home in the surrey
With the fringe on top!

I can feel the day gettin' older,
Feel a sleepy head on my shoulder,
Noddin', droopin' close to my shoulder
Till it falls ker-plop!

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'll wake up in the meader

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!
