There's a lake in the park There's a house by the lake There's a girl in the house in the park by the lake And the girl in the house by the lake in the park Is the girl in the little green hat And tonight after eight That's when I've got a date When the moon's riding high and the stars light the sky With the girl in the house by the lake in the park The girl in the little green hat There no water in the lake No roof upon the house No treesies in the park at all But I'll wait beside the lake I'll be welcome at the house I'll meet her by the garden wall There's a ship on the lake There's a sailor on the shore There's a girl in his arms, she's the girl I adore So goodbye to the house by the lake in the park And the girl in the little green hat There's a storm on the lake There's a ship in the storm There's a girl on the ship in the storm on the lake And the girl on the lake on the ship in the storm Is the girl in the little green hat As the ship starts to dip She is losing her grip Every dip makes a tip, not the girl, but the ship But the girl on the ship has the pip from the trip The girl in the little green hat She's been sailing quite enough She's been clinging to the rails She's dying to be home once more 'Cause the lake is rather rough And the girl is rather pale She's glad to get her feet on shore Ah, she gave up the ship And the captain and his men Bought a complimentary ticket to my arms once again Now I'm back in the park at the house by the lake With the girl in the little green hat (Transcribed from the Roy Fox/Sid Buckman recording by Mel Priddle - May 2006) ******************* THE GIRL IN THE LITTLE GREEN HAT There's a lake in the park, there's a house by the lake; There's a girl in the house in the park by the lake; And the girl in the house by the lake in the park Is The Girl In The Little Green Hat. And tonight after eight, that's when I've got a date; When the moon's riding high and the stars light the sky; With the girl in the house by the lake in the park; The Girl In The Little Green Hat. There’s no water in the lake, There’s no roof upon the house; No trees-es in the park at all; But I'll wait beside the lake, I'll be welcome at the house; I'll meet her by the garden wall. There's a ship on the lake, There's a sailor on the shore; There's a girl in his arms, she's the girl I adore; So goodbye to the house by the lake in the park; And the Girl In The Little Green Hat. VERSE 2: There's a storm on the lake, there's a ship in the storm; There's a girl on the ship in the storm on the lake; And the girl on the lake on the ship in the storm Is The Girl In The Little Green Hat. As the ship starts to dip, she is losing her grip; Every dip makes her tip, not the girl, but the ship; But the girl on the ship has the pip from the trip; The Girl In The Little Green Hat. She's been sailing quite enough, She's been clinging to the rails; She's dying to be home once more; 'Cause the lake is rather rough, And the girl is rather pale; She's glad to get her feet on shore. Ah, she gave up the ship, And the captain and his men For a round ticket trip to my arms once again; Now I'm back in the park at the house by the lake; With The Girl In The Little Green Hat.
