Let's Go to the Park


Let's go to the park
		     for a lark 
				let's be merry.

I'll bring a picnic lunch 
			  on a hunch 
				     la, how jolly.

You ride your bicycle 
		      with the bell 
				    to the clearing.

Meet me at the north gate 
			  half past eight 
					  I'll be early.

We'll climb up all the trees, 
			      skin our knees 
					     and get dirty

We'll chatter like the birds 
			     and our words 
					   will be happy.

Our lunch of tea and cakes 
			   we'll partake 
					 in the garden.

An afternoon of mirth 
		      and rebirth 
				  of the spirit.

At dusk we'll saunter home 
			   less alone 
				      more contented.

Let's go to the park 
		     for a lark 
				let's be silly.
