Carousel Musical – You're A Queer One, Julie Jordan lyrics

Carrie
Julie, Julie! Do you like him?

Julie
I don't know.

Carrie
Did you like it when he talked to you today,
When he put you on the carousel that way, mm mm mm
Did you like that?

Julie
I'd rather not say.

Carrie
You're a queer one, Julie Jordan,
You were quieter and deeper than a well
An' ye never tell me nuthin'!

Julie
There's nuthin' that a keer to choose to tell.

Carrie
You been acting most peculiar,
Every morning you're awake ahead of me,
Always settin' by the winder.

Julie
I like to watch the river meet the sea.

Carrie
When we work in the mill, weavin' at the loom
You gaze absent-minded at the roof
And half the time your shuttle gets twisted in the threads,
'Till you can't tell the warp from the woof.

Julie
'Taint so.

Carrie
You're a queer one, Julie Jordan,
You won't ever tell a body what you think.
You're as tight-lipped as an oyster,
And as silent as an old Sahara spink!
Julie, I've been busted to tell you something lately...

Julie
You have?!

Carrie
The reason I didn't care to tell you before is 'cause
You didn't have a fella of your own. Hmm hmm...
But now that you got one, I can tell you about mine!

Julie
I'm glad you gotta fella, Carrie!
