SWEETHEARTS IN THE PARK.
Copyright, 1896, by National Music Co.
Words by Arthur Lamb. Music by Hans S. Line.
On many a pleasant afternoon the young folks leave the streets.
And seek the Cool and shady park, where everybody meets.
There's many a pair of lovers there, which causes no remark,
For ev'ry body likes to see the sweethearts in the park.
Some will enter on their wheels, some prefer to walk.
While "neath the trees the nice fresh breeze will cool them as they talk.
They don't care then for city sights, they linger till it's dark.
You'll always see them summer nights, the sweethearts in the park.
There is no pleasure in the town that can compare with this.
The promenades beneath the trees there's none of them will miss.
It's better far than going on a noisy city lark.
There's nicer times in quiet for the sweethearts in the park - Chor.
They come together, far and near, from almost everywhere,
The thousands who are strangers all, but yet one pleasure share.
And If you could but speak to all they'd make the same remark:
"There nothing like the summer time for sweethearts in the park." - Chorus.
