ON THE BENCHES IN THE PARK
 
div
 
On a Summer's evening when the sun goes down
And you're tired of strolling around the town
Seeking recreation ere the day grows dark
Go and watch the babies playing on the benches in the Park.

Chorus: On the benches in the Park, children love to play
Sweet little girls, with their bright sunny curls
And cheeks like the dawn of a mid-summer day
Maiden shy and bashful youth, come each night to spark
The man in the moon watches them while they spoon
On the benches in the Park.


There sits little Mamie, playing with her doll
Close beside is Katy, with bran new parasol
Playing house together, happy as a lark
I have spent some pleasant moments with my sweetheart in the park.

Chorus: On the benches in the Park, children love to play
Sweet little girls, with their bright sunny curls
And cheeks like the dawn of a mid-summer day
Maiden shy and bashful youth, come each night to spark
The man in the moon watches them while they spoon
On the benches in the Park.
