Oklahoma the Musical - Lonely Room Lyrics

The Original Broadway Musical
Oklahoma! - Lonely Room Lyrics

Music by Richard Rodgers
Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II

The floor creaks,
The door squeaks,
There's a fieldmouse a-nibblin' on a broom.
And I set by myself
Like a cobweb on a shelf,
By myself in a lonely room.

But when there's a moon in my winder
And it slants down a beam 'cros my bed
Then the shadder of a tree starts a-dancin' on the wall
And a dream starts a-dancin' in my head.
And all the things that I wish fer
Turn out like I want them to be,
And I'm better than that Smart Aleck cowhand
Who thinks he is better'n me!

And the girl I want
Ain't afraid of my arms
And her own soft arms keep me warm.
And her long, yeller hair
Falls across my face
Jist like the rain in a storm!

The floor creaks,
The door squeaks,
And the mouse starts a-nibblin' on the broom.
And the sun flicks my eyes-
It was all a pack o' lies!
I'm awake in a lonely room...

I ain't gonna dream about her arms no more!
I ain't gonna leave her alone!
Goin' outside
Git myself a bride
Git me a womern to call m
My own.

[Thanks to Bardic Lady for lyrics]
