A Bench In The Park

(Milton Ager / Jack Yellen) 1930

Harry Hudson's Melody Men
Duet with Les Allen. Take-1 top Take-2 bottom

A bench in the park, unromantic and plain
That bench in the park can be our lovers lane
The glimmering light of a lamp for a moon
A cold dreary night, but in our hearts there is June

A lone little bird in the branches above
Is plantively heard serenading his love
And what more do we need, you and I in the dark
A bench in the park
