Boys and Girls Like You and Me

Lyrics By Oscar Hammerstein II  Music By Richard Rodgers

After overhearing her son and her husband take special consideration for her, the Queen lovingly embraces the King. Together, they sing a song sweetly remarking on their long-lasting love for one another.

Rodgers and Hammerstein wrote “Boys and Girls Like You and Me” for their first musical, Oklahoma!, but the song was cut during the show’s Boston tryout.

“Boys and Girls Like You and Me” LYRICS

We walk on every city street.
We walk in lanes where branches meet
And stars send down their blessings from the blue.

We go through storms of doubt and fear,
And so we walk from year to year,
Believing in each other as we do,
Bravely marching forward, two by two.

Boys and girls like you and me
Walk beneath the skies.
They love just as we love,
With the same dream in their eyes.

Songs and kings and many things
Have their day and are gone,
But boys and girls like you and me –
We go on and on.

Songs and kings and many things
Have their day and are gone,
But boys and girls like you and me –
We go on and on.
