The Farmer and the Cowman

The farmer and the cowman should be friends
Oh, the farmer and cowman should be friends
One man likes to push a plow, the other likes to chase a cow
But that's no reason why they can't be friends

   CHORUS

   Territory folks should stick together
   Territory folks should all be pals
   Cowboys dance with the farmer's daughters
   Farmers dance with the rancher's gals

   (repeat chorus)

I'd like to say a word for the farmer
He's come out west and made a lot of changes
He came out west and built a lot of fences
And built 'em right across our cattle ranges

The farmer is a good thrifty citizen
No matter what the cowman says or thinks
You'd seldom see him drinkin' in a bar room
Unless somebody else is buying drinks

But the farmer and the cowman should be friends
Oh the farmer and the cowman should be friends
The cowman ropes a cow with ease
The farmer steals her butter and cheese
But that's no reason why they can't be friends

   (CHORUS)

I'd like to say a word for the cowboy
The road he treads is difficult and stony
He rides for days on end with just a pony for a friend
I sure am feelin' sorry for the pony

The farmer should be sociable with the cowboy
If he rides by and asks for food and water
Don't treat him like a louse
Make him welcome in your house
But be sure that you lock up your wife and daughters

I'd like to teach you all a little saying
And learn it all by heart the way you should
I don't say I'm no better than anybody else
But I'll be hanged if I ain't just as good
I don't say I'm no better than anybody else
But I'll be hanged if I ain't just as good

   (CHORUS)


Oh, What a Beautiful Momin'

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
An' it looks like it's climbin' clear up to the sky

Oh, what a beautiful mornin'
Oh, what a beautiful day
I've got a beautiful feelin'
Everything's gain' my way
Oh, what a beautiful day
And say,


Surrey With the Fringe On Top

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

N' we c'n watch thet fringe and see how it flutters
When you 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 dash-board's genuine leather
With is -in -glass curtains y'can roll right down
In case there's a change in the weather

Two bright side-lights winkin' and blinkin'
Ain't no finer rig I'm a-think in'

You c'n keep yer rig if you're thinkin'
'At I'd keep to swap
Fer that shiny little surrey with the fringe on top
Don't ever stop that little surrey with the fringe on the top
Clip, clop
And.....


People Will Say We're in Love

Don't throw bouquets at me
Don't please my folks too much
Don't laugh at my Jokes too much
People will say we're in love

Don't sigh and gaze at me
Your sighs are so like mine
Your eyes mustn't glow like mine
People will say we're in love

Don't start collecting things
Give me my rose and my glove
Sweetheart they're suspecting things
People will say we're in love
In love with.....


Oklahoma Reprise

Oklahoma, where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain
Where the wavin' wheat can sure smell sweet
When the wind comes right behind the rain

Oklahoma, ev'ry night my honey lamb and I
Sit alone and talk
And watch a hawk makin' lazy circles in the sky

We know we belong to the land
And the land we belong to is grand
And when we say Yeow!
A-yip-i-o-ee ay!
We're only sayin'
You're doin' fine, Oklahoma
Oklahoma O - K - L - A - H - 0 - M - A
Oklahoma! Yeow!
