Sittin' in the park, 
Waitin' for hooo-hoo-hoo-hoo sha-la 

Yes I'm sitting right here 
Waiting for you my dear 
Wondering if you ever 
want to show up 

I don't know you're gonna show 
My darlin' I got to go 
But nevertheless I staying 
You got to be waiting 

Sittin' in the park, 
Waitin' for hooo-hoo-hoo-hoo sha-la-la 

Sitting here on the bench 
With my back against the fence 
Wonderin'-a-if I 
Have any sense 

Something tells me I'm a fool 
Let you treat me so cruel 
But nevertheless I say again 
you gotta be waiting 

Sittin' in the park, 
Waitin' for hoooo-hoo-hoo-hoo 

Why oh, why oh, why oh, 
Why oh, why oh, why oh, why 

Won't you tell me why 
Oh my darlin I'm sittin' right now 
Oh, girl, I want to know why? 
Why? sha-la-la-la 

Sittin' in the park, 
Waiting for hooo-hoo-hoo-hoo sha-la-la 

Sittin' here on the bench 
With my back against the fence 
Wonderin-a-if I 
Have any sense 

Something tells me I'm a fool 
Let you treat me so cruel 
Nevertheless I say it 
You gotta be waiting 

Sittin' in the park, 
Waiting for hooo-hoo-hoo-hoo 

No I'm not gonna wait 
I am tired of waiting 
No longer gonna wait, girl 
Any longer
I'm tired of waiting 
No longer gonna wait, girl
