This is the second song from the 1943 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical Oklahoma! How does a cowboy take his girl to a social? In a Surrey with a fringe on the top (here's a photo of a Surrey. This is sung by Curly to Laurey.

Though it has a certain rustic charm, most girls nowadays would prefer Marc Cohn's "Silver Thunderbird" or even Tom Robinson's "Grey Cortina". The song is a show tune and has been widely recorded, including as an instrumental; the music is unquestionably stronger than the lyrics. (thanks, Alexander Baron - London, England)
