Would You Like To Walk With Me Beside The Lake

How would you like to walk with me beside the lake
It’s a lovely stroll that you and I could take
With the bathers and the waders
The joggers and the skaters
The lovers and the daters
And the mellow Frisbee players
It’s a circus for your eyes for goodness sake
How would you like to walk with me beside the lake

Would you like to go to the Shedd Aquarium
And late to the planetarium
There’ll be starfish on the ceiling
That’ll send our senses reeling
Like the flowers at the arboretum

How would you like to walk with me beside the lake
It’s a lovely stroll that you and I could take
With the bathers and the waders
The joggers and the skaters
The lovers and the daters
And the mellow Frisbee players
It’s a circus for your eyes for goodness sake
How would you like to walk with me beside the lake

Would you like to go with me to Navy Pier
When they have Chicago Fest again this year
We’ll dance till we are loony
Buy a flower from a Moonie
And then we’ll drink about a case of beer

How would you like to walk with me beside the lake
It’s a lovely stroll that you and I could take
With the bathers and the waders
The joggers and the skaters
The lovers and the daters
And the mellow Frisbee players
It’s a circus for your eyes for goodness sake
How would you like to walk with me beside the lake

Or we could go to see Venetian Night
With all the floats and boats
A festive sight and a fireworks display
That looks like Armageddon day
With all Chicago lit up by the light

How would you like to walk with me beside the lake
It’s a lovely stroll that you and I could take
With the bathers and the waders
The joggers and the skaters
The lovers and the daters
And the mellow Frisbee players
It’s a circus for your eyes for goodness sake
How would you like to walk with me beside the lake

And if city livin’ makes your noggin’ ache
I advise you that it’s time to take a break
And come to a decision
Turn off your television
And come and walk with me beside the lake

How would you like to walk with me beside the lake
It’s a lovely stroll that you and I could take
With the bathers and the waders
The joggers and the skaters
The lovers and the daters
And the mellow Frisbee players
It’s a circus for your eyes for goodness sake
How would you like to walk with me beside the lake

It’s a party by the lake all summer long
And anyone can go there for a song
One weekend it was great
‘Cause while a million people ate
They had picnicking and concerts on the lawn

How would you like to walk with me beside the lake
It’s a lovely stroll that you and I could take
With the bathers and the waders
The joggers and the skaters
The lovers and the daters
And the mellow Frisbee players
It’s a circus for your eyes for goodness sake
How would you like to walk with me beside the lake

Would you like to watch the baseball over here
The team is brought together once a year
It’s hard to tell who’s winning
‘Cause there’s thirty runs an inning
And they yell a lot and drink a bunch of beer

How would you like to walk with me beside the lake
It’s a lovely stroll that you and I could take
With the bathers and the waders
The joggers and the skaters
The lovers and the daters
And the mellow Frisbee players
It’s a circus for your eyes for goodness sake
How would you like to walk with me beside the lake
