Yo La Tengo Oklahoma, USA Lyrics

Last updated: 01/30/2013 08:30:45 AM

All life we work, but work is a 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
'Cause in her dreams, she is far away, 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?
