Oh what a beautiful evenin’

Tales from the Theatrical Woods, Chapter 26

There’s a lush verdant sheen in the orchard
There’s a lush verdant sheen in the orchard
The parsley’s as high as a startled doe’s eye,
An’ it looks like it’s climbin’ clear up to the sky.
Oh, what a beautiful evenin’,
Oh, what a beautiful day.
I got a beautiful feelin’
Ev’rything’s goin’ our way.

Martin’s men they are scurryin’ like termites
Martin’s men they are scurryin’ like termites
They don’t turn their heads as they see me pass by,
But little Scots Stewart is winkin’ his eye.
Oh, what a beautiful evenin’,
Oh, what a beautiful day.
I got a beautiful feelin’
Ev’rything’s goin’ our way.

All the singing on stage is like heaven
All the singing on stage is like heaven
The breeze is so busy it don’t miss a tree,
And a ol’ weepin’ willer is laughin’ at me!
Oh, what a beautiful evenin’,
Oh, what a beautiful day.
I got a beautiful feelin’
Ev’rything’s goin’ our way.
Oh, what a beautiful day!
