Words by John J. Hanan. Music by W. A. Kemp.

Falrmount Park in summer is a crowded thoroughfare;
I go there ev'ry Sunday to get the balmy air;
I always take my sweetheart, she's my intended bride;
You'd envy me if you could see my sweetheart by my side.

O! dear, I steer straight for the park on a Sunday;
Dudes, sports, all sorts, take in the park on that day;
Larking, sparking, I stroll by the mashers with pride;
How they envy me whene'er they see my sweetheart by my side.

in winter when the snow falls a change comes o'er the scene;
A beautiful white mantle then takes the place of green.
There, 'mong the many thousands, who o'er that mantle glide,
in a handsome sleigh I drive away, my sweetheart by my side.- Cho.

Of course, it's only natur'l for me to say that she
Is the sweetest girl I know, but with me you would agree,
If us you'd see on Sunday, you'd think the knot was tied;
'Tis a happy pair when I go there, my sweetheart by my side.-Cho.
