Lyrics: Harold Rome.
Tune: Harold Rome.


All week long, I work in the shop;
I work and work and never stop:
Get up at 6:00 and go to bed at 9:00.
But the day I think is the best
Is Sunday; that’s my chance to rest:
The only day that you might say is mine.
We leave our hot and stuffy flat
(There’s one place that we know.)
And subway to the public park:
Oh, that’s the place to go—

On Sunday in the park,
All week long, we keep on looking forward to
The happy things we’ll do.
It’s such a lark on Sunday in the park.
Sitting in the sun
With the trees and grass and flowers everywhere
With lots of room to spare,
We have such fun on Sunday in the park.
Rich folks go away to the country, you know, when the days get hot,
But we all decided that we wouldn’t go: we prefer this silent spot
On Sunday in the park.
It’s our summer home where we can play and sport,
Our fashionable resort,
Until its dark on Sunday in the park.

Sunday in the park,
All week long, we keep on looking forward to
The happy things we’ll do.
It’s such a lark on Sunday in the park.
Sitting in the sun
With the trees and grass and flowers everywhere
With lots of room to spare,
We have such fun on Sunday in the park.
Rich folks go away to the country, you know, when the days get hot,
But we all decided that we wouldn’t go: we prefer this silent spot
On Sunday in the park.
It’s our summer home where we can play and sport,
Our fashionable resort,
Until its dark on Sunday in the park.
