I walked in, I sat down, Took my customary look around I saw a fine young thing headin straight my way Before I could think of something slick to say she smiled, sat down and said, "Yes you may." she was slappin the cakes on me my friend, slappin the cakes on me she was slappin the cakes on me my friend, as any fool could plainly see she was full of feminine expertise, she was on her toes and I was on my knees, she was slappin the cakes on me my friend, slappin the cakes on me I was mute, I was mum, I was trying not to look to dumb I said, "I certainly hope you won't misconstrue, But perhaps we could have a little drink or 2." I said, "What's your pleasure?" , she said, "Guys like you." she was slappin the cakes on me my friend, slappin the cakes on me she was slappin the cakes on me my friend, as any fool could plainly see Well she grabbed my leg and gave a friendly squeeze I said hello sweetheart," she said, "No names please." she was slappin the cakes on me my friend, slappin the cakes on me We walked out, hand in hand, Exactly like the lady planned That's when I moved in with my smoothest line I said, "Look here woman." I said, "What's your sign?" she said, "Later for that, your place or mine?" she was slappin the cakes on me my friend, slappin the cakes on me she was slappin the cakes on me my friend, as any fool could plainly see she was a ruthless master of cool intrique she was over my head, I was out of my league she was slappin the cakes on me my friend, slappin the cakes on me she was slappin the cakes on me my friend, slappin the cakes on me Now to tell you the truth that's exactly what happened just the other night when this lady started slappin the cakes on me, slapppin the cakes on me

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 stepping strutters. Nosey pokes will 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 you can roll right down In case there's a change in the weather. Two bright sidelight's winking and blinking, Ain't no finer rig I'm a-thinking You can keep your rig if you're thinking that I'd care to swap For that shiny, little surrey with the fringe on the top I can see the stars getting blurry, As we drive back home in the surrey, Driving slowly home in the surrey with the fringe on top I can feel the day getting older, Feel that sleepy head on my shoulder, Nodding, drooping, so close to my shoulder, till it falls kerplop The sun is swimmin' on the rim of a hill The moon is taking a header, And just 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 some dreams worth a-keepin' Whoa! you team, and just keep a-creepin' at a slow clip clop Don't you hurry with the surrey with the fringe on the top Well those chicks, and ducks, and gees better scurry When I take you out in the surrey I'll take you out in the surrey with the fringe on top I'll take you out in the surrey with the fringe on top

My first, My last, My everything And the answer to all my dreams You are my sun, my moon My Guiding Star My kind of wonderful That's what you are I know, there's only, only one like you There's no way they could have made two You're all I'm living for Your love I'll keep for evermore You're My first, My last, my everything With you, I've found, so many things A love so new only you could bring Can't you see it's true You make me feel this way You're like the morning dew On a brand new day I see, so many, so many ways that I That I can love ya, till the day I die You're my reality And I'm lost in a dream You're My first, My last, My everything I see, so many, so many ways that I That I can love ya, till the day I die You're all I'm living for Your love I'll keep for evermore You're My first My last My everything
