Saturday in the Park you'd think it was the Fourth of July.

Saturday in the Park you'd think it was the Fourth of July.

Bm7             Em7               Dm9

People dancing, people smiling, a man selling ice cream

    C               D

And singing Italian songs.

G             Gsus      C                G

[ad lib Italian words]  Can you dig it?  Yes, I can.

              Am7                          D7     G    C

And I've been waiting such a long time for Saturday.

 

Another day in the Park, I think it was the Fourth of July.

Another day in the Park, I think it was the Fourth of July.

People talking, really smiling, a man playing guitar & singing for us all.

Will you help him change the world?  Can you dig it?  Yes, I can.

And I’ve been waiting such a long time for today.

 

BRIDGE:

Gm7  C      Gm7

Slow motion riders fly the colors of the day.

  Bbm7   Eb  Bbm7  Eb  Bbm7 Eb Bbm7

A bronze man still can tell stories his own way.

Dm7     G         Dm7        G

Listen, children, all is not lost;

Dm7        G     Dm7   G      Am7

All is not lost, oh--, no--, no.

 

Am7    Am7(add D)    D9    D7    Dm9/G    Dm7/G    C

 

Funny days in the Park, everyday’s the Fourth of July.

Funny days in the Park, everyday’s the Fourth of July.

People reaching, people touching, a real celebration waiting for us all.

If you want it, really want it.  Can you dig it?  Yes I can.

And I've been waiting such a long time for the day.
