"Swingin' in the Park (After Dark)"

© 2000 by Andersen Silva

CHORUS:
Swingin' in the park (after dark)!
Swingin' in the park (after dark)!
Swingin' in the park (after dark)!
Swingin'...


I was walkin' through the park,
     Had you so much on my mind,
Alone there in the dark,
     Hopped on the swings so close to cryin',
I was down 'n I was low, I was swingin' in the park after dark!

Missin' you so bad, babe,
     I hoped that you would come back to me,
No one else in sight
     As I launched myself... skywardly!
And before I really knew it, I was swingin' in the park after dark!

Well, it helped clear my head,
     Though my heart was still sore.
I knew that you loved me
     As much as before.
Had our brief moment,
     Now we'll have to see
If we'll ever have more;
     'Til then I'll be-

CHORUS

And that's the way it goes, babe,
     I'm waitin' in the park for you,
Don'tcha take too long, babe,
     Don'tcha leave this little boy blue,
I'm hopin' someday soon we'll be swingin' in the park after dark-
     Together!

CHORUS:
Swingin' in the park (after dark)!
Swingin' in the park (after dark)!
Swingin' in the park (after dark)!
