Yo La Tengo – Oklahoma, U.S.A. lyrics
All life we work, oh, 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, far away
In Oklahoma, you. S. A.
With Shirley Jones and Gordon Mcrea

While she buys her papers at the corner shop
She's walkin' on the Surrey with the fringe on top
'Cause in her dreams she is far, far away
In Oklahoma, you. S. A.

She walks to work but she's still in a daze
She's Rita Hayworth or Doris Day
And Errol Flynn's wants to take her away
To Oklahoma, you. S. A.

All life we work, oh, work is a bore
If life's for livin', what's livin' for?
