Yo La Tengo Oklahoma, U.S.A. Lyrics

Last updated: 09/26/2009 12:00:00 PM

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, far away
In Oklahoma U.S.A.
With Shirley Jones and Gordon McRea,
As she buys her papers at the cornershop,
She's walkin' on the surrey with the fringe on top,
Cos in her dreams she is faraway, far away
In Oklahoma U.S.A.,
She walks to work but she's still in a daze,
She's Rita Hayworth or Doris Day,
And Errol Flynn wants to take her away,
To Oklahoma U.S.A.
All life we work but work is a bore,
If life's for livin', what's livin' for?
