    “Oh JB, can we get on the bus and go, it’s just an old surrey”

    “Old surrey? That’s not what I see..

    (Middle C… )

    All the world’ll fly in a flurry
    When I see Illinois in the surrey,
    When I see Illinois in the surrey with Honest Abe on top

    When we hit that road, hell fer leather,
    Cats and dogs’ll dance in the heather,
    Birds and frogs’ll sing all together and the toads will hop
    The wind’ll whistle as we rattle along,
    The cows’ll moo in the clover,
    The river will ripple out a whispered song,
    And whisper it over and over:

    Don’t you wisht to campaign forever?
    Don’t you wisht to campaign forever?
    Don’t you wisht to campaign and ud never stop
    In that shiny, little surrey with Honest Abe on the top

    I can see the Ads gettin’ blurry,
    When we ride back home in the surrey,
    Ridin’ slowly home in the surrey with Honest Abe on top

    I can feel the day gettin’ older,
    Feel Abe’s head restin’ near my shoulder,
    Noddin’, droopin’ close to my shoulder, till it falls kerplop

    The sun is swimmin’ on the rim of a hill;
    The moon is takin’ a header,
    And jist as I’m thinkin’ all the earth is still,
    A lark’ll wake up in the medder.
    Hush, you bird, Honest Abe’s a-sleepin’

    Maybe got a dream worth a-keepin’
    Whoa! you team, and jist keep a-creepin’ at a slow clip clop.
    Don’t you hurry with the surrey with Abe sleepin’ on the top”

    (Pause)

    “Get in the bus, k. Just get in the bus”
