The Surrey with the Fringe on Top (華麗馬車) - Andy Williams (安迪·威廉姆斯)

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

The wheels are yeller 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 c'n keep your rig if you're thinkin' 'at I'd keer to swap

Fer 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

Drivin' 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 kerplop

The sun is swimmin' on the rim of a hill;

The moon is takin' a header

And jist as I'm thinkin' all the earth is still

A lark'll wake up in the medder

Hush you bird my baby's a-sleepin'

Maybe got a dream worth a-keepin'

Whoa you team and jist keep a-creepin' at a slow clip clop

Don't you hurry with the surrey with the fringe on the top

Don't you hurry with the surrey with the fringe on the top
