Shirley Jones Lyrics Many a New Day (From Oklahoma!)

Song name Many a New Day (From Oklahoma!)
Artist Shirley Jones
Album “Then and Now”

[Laurey:]
Why should a woman who is healthy and strong
Blubber like a baby if her man goes away
A weeping and a wailing how he’s done her wrong?
That’s one thing you’ll never hear me say

Never gonna think that the man I lose
Is the only man among men
I’ll snap my fingers to show I don’t care
I’ll buy me a brand new dress to wear
I’ll scrub my neck and I’ll brush my hair
And start all over again

[Chorus:]
Many a new face will please my eye
Many a new love will find me
Never have I once looked back to sigh
Over the romance behind me
Many a new day will dawn
Before I do

Many a light lad may kiss and fly
A kiss gone by is bygone
Never have I asked an August sky
Where has last July gone?
Never have I wandered through the rye
Wondering where has some guy gone
Many a new day will dawn
Before I do

[Together:]

[Chorus]

[Laurey:]
Never have I chased the honeybee
Who carelessly cajoled me
Somebody else just as sweet as he
Cheered me and consoled me
Never have I wept into my tea
Over the deal someone doled me

[Together:]
Many a new day will dawn

[Laurey:]
Many a red sun will set
Many a blue moon will shine
Before I do

[Together:]

[Chorus]

[Laurey:]
Many a red sun will set
Many a blue moon will shine
Before I do
