On the Mall in Central Park.

Words by M. Maurice Music by Ed. Treumann.
Ev'ry pleasant afternoon, on the day of rest,
Husbands, wives and sweethearts, dressed up in their best,
All go out a-strolling for a quiet lark,
And listen to the music on the mall in Central Park.
Old And young, rich and poor, hearts that swell with pride,
While the hand is playing, strolling side by side;
When the sun has gone to rest and it's just growing dark,
Then t-upid shoots his arrow on the mall in Central Park.
See the loving couples sit 'neath some shady tree,
Talking o'er the future, happy as can be;
The grand tones of the music awak'ning love's first spark.
They plight their troth forever on the mall in Central Park.- Cho.
