Chicks and geese and ducks better scurry
When I take you out in the surrey
When I take you out in the surrey with the fringe on top

Watch the fringe and see how it flutters
I will ride those high-steppin' strutters
Nosy pokes will peek through their shutters
And their eyes will pop

The wheels are yeller the upholstery brown
The dash board's genuine leather
With in-sin glass curtains you can roll right down
In case there's a change in the weather

Two bright side lights winkin' and blinkin'
Ain't no fingering what I'm thinkin'
You'd be fingering if you're thinkin' that I'd care to swap
For the shiny little surrey with the fringe on top
