Oklahoma the Musical - Many A New Day Lyrics

The Original Broadway Musical
Oklahoma! - Many A New Day Lyrics


Music by Richard Rodgers
Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II


WOMEN'S CHORUS:
Oh, what a beautiful Mornin'

CURLY:
Oh, what a beautiful day.

WOMEN'S CHORUS:
I've got a beautiful feelin'

CURLY:
Everything's goin' my way.

LAUREY:
Why should a woman who is healthy and strong
Blubber like a baby if her man's goes away?
A weepin' an' a whalin' that he's done her wrong
That's one thing you'll never hear me say!
Never gonna think that the man I lose is the only man among men!
I'll snap my fingers to show I don't care
I'll buy me a brand new dress to wear
I'll scrub my neck
And I'll brush my hair
And start all over again!

Many a new face will please my eye
Many a new love will find me
Never have I once looked back to sigh
Over the romance behind me
Many a new day will dawn before I do!

Many a like lad may kiss and fly
A kiss gone by is bygone.
Never have I asked an August sky
"Where has last July gone?"
Never have I wandered through the rye
Wondering "where has some guy gone?"
Many a new day will dawn before I do.

GIRLS:
Many a new face will please my eye
Many a new love will find me
Never have I once looked back to sigh
Over the romance behind me
Many a new day will dawn before I do!

LAUREY:
Never have I chased the honeybee
Who carelessly cajoled me
Somebody jist as sweet as he
Cheered me and consoled me.
Never have I wept into my tea
Over the deal someone doled me

GIRLS:
Many a new day will dawn

LAUREY:
Many a red sun will set
Many a blue moon will shine
Before I do!

GIRLS:
Many a new face will please my eye
Many a new love will find me
Never have I once looked back to sigh
Over the romance behind me
Many a new day will dawn before I do!

Never have I chased the honeybee
Who carelessly cajoled meSomebody jist as sweet as he
Cheered me and consoled me.
Never have I wept into my tea
Over the deal someone doled me
Many a new day will dawn

LAUREY:
Many a red sun will set
Many a blue moon will shine
Before I do!
