Oklahoma USA


All life we work but work is bore
If life's for livin' what's livin' for

She lives in a house that's near decay
Built for the industrial revolution
But in her dreams she is far away
In Oklahoma USA
With Shirley Jones and Gordon McRea
 
She buys her paper at the corner shop
She's walkin' on the Surrey with the fringe on top
And in her dreams she is far away
In Oklahoma USA

She walks to work but she's still in a daze
She's Rita Hayworth or Doris Day
And Errol Flynn's gonna take her away
To Oklahoma USA

All life we work but work is a bore
If life's for livin' then what's livin' for
