There's a bright golden

haze on the meadow

There's a bright golden

haze on the meadow

The corn is as high

as an elephant's eye

And it looks like it's

climbin' clear up to the sky

Oh, what a beautiful morning

Oh, what a beautiful day

I got a beautiful feeling

Everything's goin' my way

(BIRDS CHIRPING)

All the sounds of the

earth are like music

All the sounds of the

earth are like music

The breeze is so busy

it don't miss a tree

And a ol' weepin' willer

is laughin' at me

Oh, what a beautiful morning

Oh, what a beautiful day

I got a beautiful feeling

Everything's goin' my way

Oh, what a beautiful day

(ROOSTER CROWS)

(CHICKENS CLUCKING)

- Hi, Aunt Eller!

- Don't scare me to death.

- What you doin' around here?

- I come a-singin' to you.

Oh, what a beautiful morning

Oh, what a beautiful day

I got a beautiful feeling

Everything's goin' my way

If I wasn't an old woman, and if you

wasn't so young and smart-alecky,

why, I'd marry you and get you to

sit around at night and sing to me.

No, you wouldn't neither, 'cause I wouldn't

marry you nor none of your kinfolk.

- If I could help it.

- Oh, none of my kinfolks, huh?

And you can tell 'em

that too. All of 'em.

Including that niece of

your'n, Miss Laurey Williams.

Who you takin' to the

box social tonight?

I ain't thought much about it yet.

- Bet you come over to ask Laurey.

- What if I did?

You askin' me too?

I'll wear my fascinator.

- Yeah, you too.

- Yeah, yeah.

Oh, what a beautiful morning

Oh, what a beautiful day

I thought you were somebody.

I got a beautiful feeling

Everything's goin' my way

Is this all that's come a-callin' at

already 8:
00 this Saturday morning?

You knowed it was me

before you opened the door.

- No such of a thing.

- Well, you did too.

You heared my voice.

You knowed it was me.

I heared someone singing

like a bullfrog in a pond.

You knowed it was me, so you set in

there, thinkin' up something mean to say.

I'm a good mind not to

ask you to the box social.

- Oh, you two.

- If you asked me, I wouldn't go with you.

Besides, how'd you take me?

You ain't bought a new buggy with

red wheels onto it, have you?

No, I ain't.

A spankin' team with their

bridles all a-jinglin'?

No.

Expect me to ride on

behind ol' Blue I guess.

You better ask that old Cummings

girl you took such a shine to.

If I was to ask you, Miss Laurey

smarty, there'd be a way to take ya.

Oh, there would?

How'd we get there?

When I take you out tonight with me

Honey, here's the way it's gonna 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

Nosy pokes'll peek

through their shutters

And their eyes'll pop

The wheels are yeller

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

Two bright sidelights

winkin' and blinkin'

Ain't no finer rig I'm a-thinkin'

You can keep your rig

if you're thinkin'

That I'd "keer" to swap

For that shiny little surrey

with the fringe on the top

Would you say the fringe

was made of silk

(LAUGHS)

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

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
