Words by Edward Jay Allen. Music by J. De Ruver.

I'm sitting to-day in the old playground.
Where you and I sat so oft together;
I'm thinking of the joys, when you and I were boys.
In those merry days now gone, John, forever.
'Twas here we sat in the merry olden time.
And we dreamed of the wide world before us;
And our visions and hopes of the coming time
Were as bright as the sun which shone o'er us.

O'er this freehold, John, we passed forlorn,
To wander we knew not where;
The heaven, we thought so bright, was o'ershadowed by night,
And the pathway lay dark and drear.
But I'm sitting to-day in the old playground,
Where you and I have sat so oft together;
And these memories wild have made me a child,
As in those merry days now gone, John, forever.
