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

(SOFTLY) 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 it'd never stop

In that shiny little surrey

with the fringe on the top

You'd sure feel like a queen

settin' up in that carriage.

Only she talked to me

so mean a while back,

- I'm a good mind not to take her.

- I ain't said I was goin'.

- Well, I ain't asked ya.

- Where'd you get such a rig at?

I'll bet he's went and hired a rig over

at Claremore, thinkin' I'd go with him.

I did not hire it. I made the

whole thing up out of my head.

- What? Made it up?

- Dashboard and all.


Get off the place, you!

Aunt Eller, make him get hisself

out of here! Tellin' me lies.

Now hold on. Makin' up a few "purties"

ain't agin no law I know of.

Besides, don't you wish

there was such a rig though?

You could go to the play party and do a

hoedown till morning if you was a mind to.

Then when you was all wore out,

why, I'd just lift you onto the surrey,

jump up alongside you, and we'd

just point the horses home.

I can just picture the whole thing.

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, 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
