Ok lahoma!

Oklahoma U.S.A.

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 U.S.A.
With Shirley Jones and Gordon McRea,
As she buys her paper at the corner shop,
She’s walkin’ on the surrey with the fringe on top,
Cos in her dreams she is 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‘s gonna take her away,
To Oklahoma U.S.A.,
All life we work but work is a bore,
If life’s for livin’ then what’s livin’ for

    Never heard that song before. Thanks for sharing. Heres a Byrds song that mentions him.

    Ooooooooooooooohhhh-youreallygotitgoingheinz! Thank you for this fringe song from The Kinks. Just in time for their alleged Reunion Tour of 2019! Here are a kouple of Kinksy photos, one from their swinging Invasion days, and one I came across recently that could be their official Reunion Tour poster photo.

      Those were the days of Britinvasion instead of Brexit, Jukebox Tim. 4 thumbs up! The later image shows another band though- them were the Rolling Skull and Bones!
