WON’T YOU COME, DEAR, INTO THE PARK
 
div
 
I feel lonely, lonely as can be
Since my Jeremiah went across the sea
In the Park we used to bill and coo
Now that he has left me, I don't know what to do
For finding girls he always had a knack
So I must find a boy till he comes back.

Chorus: Won't you come, dear, into the Park?
Say, won't you come, come, come
Where we two can have a nice long spoon
Talk like we would upon our honeymoon
Now, won't you come, dear, into the Park?
Just for a lark, dear, when it is dark
I'll let you hold my hand, while we listen to the band
Now, won't you come, dear, into the Park?


Oh, dear me, I'm almost in despair
Why, think of all the fun Jerry's having over there
No one trusts me, that is plain to see
Now who amongst you boys my Jerry wants to be
(Speak quickly and avoid the rush... No nothing doing.)
But wait, there's someone here within my reach
Why, the very boy I want, ain't he a peach?

Chorus: Won't you come, dear, into the Park?
Would you leave your happy home for a voice like that?
We two can have a nice long... Don't blush,
It'll soon be over... our honeymoon
Now, won't you come, dear, into the Park?
Just for a lark, dear, when it is dark
I'll cuddle you so, till your hair begins to grow
Now, won't you come, dear, into the Park?


Say, won't you come, dear, into the Park?
Say, won't you come, come, come
Where we two can have a nice long spoon
Talk like we would upon our honeymoon
Now, won't you come, dear, into the Park?
Just for a lark, dear, when it is dark
And you can bet your life that I'll never tell your wife
So, won't you come, dear, into the Park?

Risk it!
