Thursday night, the Zman took his mama to the Casa Manana "Summer Musicals at the Bass" production of:


It was WONDERFUL! There are so many great songs in Oklahoma! that it is hard to pick just one to treat you with (just think: The Surrey with the Fringe on Top; Oh, What a Beautiful Morning; All er Nuthin'; People Will Say We're in Love; and, of course, the title song). But we'll pick the one that made us laugh:

I'm Jist a Girl Who Cain't Say No

It ain't so much a question of not knowing what to do.
I knowed whut's right and wrong since I been ten.
I heared a lot of stories and I reckon they are true
About how girls're put upon by men.
I know I mustn't fall into the pit,
But when I'm with a feller, I fergit!
I'm jist a girl who cain't say no,
I'm in a turrible fix I always say "come on, le's go"
Jist when I orta say nix!

When a person tries to kiss a girl,
I know she orta give his face a smack.
But as soon as someone kisses me,
I somehow, sorta, wanta kiss him back!

I'm jist a fool when lights are low
I cain't be prissy and quaint
I ain't the type that can faint
How c'n I be whut I ain't?
I cain't say no!

Whut you goin' to do when a feller gits flirty, and starts to talk purty?
Whut you goin' to do?
S'posin' 'at he says 'at yer lips're like cherries, er roses, er berries?
Whut you goin' to do?
S'posin' 'at he says 'at you're sweeter 'n cream,
And he's gotta have cream er die?
Whut you goin' to do when he talks that way,
Spit in his eye?

I'm jist a girl who cain't say no,
Cain't seem to say it at all
I hate to disserpoint a beau
When he is payin' a call!
Fer a while I ack refined and cool,
A settin on the velveteen setee
Nen I think of thet ol' golden rule,
And do fer him what he would do fer me!

I cain't resist a Romeo
In a sombrero and chaps
Soon as I sit on their laps
Somethin' inside of me snaps
I cain't say no!


I love Oklahoma. The last time I watched it, I got all choked up at the end when they sing with such enthusiasm OKLAHOMA....Oklahoma, YOW!

I know every word to every song!

It's a good 'un.

The only thing that would have made it better would have been if it had been about California. Otherwise, I concur.
