"The Fountain in the Park"
also known as
"While Strolling in the Park One Day"

While strolling through the park one day,
All in the merry month of May,
I roguish pair of eyes they took me by surprise
In a moment my poor heart she stole away.

Oh, a sunny smile was all she gave to me
And of course we were as happy as can be.

So neatly I raised my hat and made a polite remark,
I never shall forget that lovely afternoon,
When I met her at the fountain in the park.
