Lyrics:
Oh, the concert in the park
Where we met in the dark
Oh, what an atmosphere
We started cuddling near
It was grand
And the band was playing...

Slower than the dickens
While I sipped a glass of cola
So I asked if their pianos
Couldn't play a bar of "Nola"

Oh, the concert in the park
I felt just like a lark
My heart was filled with bliss
Each time we sealed a kiss
It was grand
And the band was playing...

Something like a polka
There was awful lots of meter
So I took a ripe tomato
And threw it at the leader

Sweet music brought romance our way
The more they'd play, the more we'd love
The more we'd love, the more they'd play
Oh, the concert in the park
That showed that certain spark
And when you whispered, "Yes"
I found my happiness
It was grand
And the band was playing...

Symphonies and waltzes
From beginning to the coda
And I got so darn disgusted
That I couldn't drink my soda

Now we're all set because we met
At the concert in the park

You're talking 'bout the concert
And it doesn't mean a thing
You never liked the concert
All you ever liked was swing
You never got romantic at a concert
So you're wrong
Unless you think it sounded
Kind of pretty in your song

Now we're all set because we met
At the concert in the park
