COURTING IN CENTRAL PARK.
Copyright, 1896, by Ida Monroe.
Composed by Ida Monroe.
Ev'ry pleasant evening, shortly after dark,
Boys and girls are strolling off to Central Park;
Charming nooks and by-ways, arbors full of green,
Lots of fine attractions ev'rywhere are seen.
If you'd spark after dark,
As lovers love to do,
Just stroll thro' Central Park
With your sweetheart true;
Many's the stolen kiss,
While out upon a lark;
Such pleasure and bliss with sweet little Miss,
While courting in Central Park.
Birds gay, music trilling, flitting here and there;
Flower-beds a-blossom perfume sweet the air;
Nature's so delightful, lovers love to roam;
Central Park to court in, there they feel at home.- Chorus.
Then when you get married, settled down for life,
Buy a baby carriage, present for your wife,
Send them out for airing, often there to walk,
'Twill bring bappy mem'ries of courting in the Park.- Chorus.
