Chicks and ducks and geese better scurry
When I take you out in my surrey
When I take you out in my 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 through their shutters
And their eyes will pop!

The wheels are yellow, 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 sidelight's winkin' and blinkin'
Ain't no finer rig I'm a-thinkin'!
You can keep your rig if you're thinkin' that I'd care to swap
For that shiny little surrey with the fringe on the top!
