Lyrics

While strolling through the park one day,
In the merry merry month of May,
He was taken by surprise,
By a pair of roguish eyes,
In a moment his poor heart was stole away.

A smile was all she gave to him,
Of course she was as happy as can be,

He immediately raised his hat,
And finally she remarked,
He never will forget,
That lovely afternoon,
He met her at the fountain in the park.

While strolling through the park one day,
In the merry merry month of May,
I was taken by surprise,
By a pair of roguish eyes,
In a moment my poor heart was stole away.

A smile was all she gave to me,
Of course it made me happy as can be,

I immediately raised my hat,
And finally she remarked,
But I never shall forget,
That lovely afternoon,
I met her at the fountain in the park.

It was my lucky afternoon,
The weather was so fair
And there was I, a walking Dapper Dan
With tilted derby cane in hand
I felt so debonair
To make it short, here's how it all began
Yes, here's how it all began...

The organ played a pretty tune,
In the merry merry month of June,
On her finger went a ring,
As the choir began to sing,
In a moment we were on a honeymoon.

And then we raised a family,
We never knew how happy we could be,

Though the future may be cold and dark,
It will always be a lark,
And when we're old and grey,
I will still recall the day,
I met her at the fountain in the park!

She wore a daring gingham gown
And new high-button shoes,
And on her shoulder twirled a parasol.
Her eyes invited me to join her,
How could I refuse?
Here's the situation as I recall
Just listen as I tell you all...

While strolling through the park one day,
In the merry merry month of May,
I was taken by surprise,
By a pair of roguish eyes,
In a moment my poor heart was stole away.

A smile was all she gave to me,
Of course it made me happy as can be,

I immediately raised my hat,
And finally she remarked,
But I never shall forget,
That lovely afternoon,
I met her at the fountain in the park!
