Description

This ARTSEDGE lesson explores the magic of the vocabulary used by Oscar Hammerstein in his lyrics. Students "translate" the lyrics of the song "The Surrey with the Fringe on Top," from the musical "Oklahoma!." They determine if the translated lyrics provide the same meaning and feeling as the original Hammerstein lines then rewrite the lyrics once more, using contemporary slang.
