Cherry Hill Park (Billy Joe Royal)


Mary Hill used to hang out in Cherry Hill Park
The games she played lasted all day till way after dark
All the girls they criticized her
But all the guys just idolized her
‘Cause Mary Hill was such a thrill after dark
In Cherry Hill Park
Mary Hill loved to ride the merry-go-round
All the guys got eager eyes watchin’ Mary go round
In the daytime Mary Hill was a teaser
Come the night she was such a pleaser
Oh Mary Hill was such a thrill after dark
In Cherry Hill Park
Mary Hill sure was fun down in Cherry Hill Park
Playing games with everyone till way after dark
In Cherry Hill Park, Cherry Hill Park
Then one day, Mary Hill, she married away
A man with some money said “Come on, honey”
& she said okay
She went away to play a one man game
& since that day it ain’t been the same
‘Cause Mary Hill was such a thrill after dark
In Cherry Hill Park
Mary Hill sure was fun down in Cherry Hill Park
Playing games with everyone till way after dark
In Cherry Hill Park, Cherry Hill Park
