"Cherry Hill Park" as written by and Nix/gilmore....
Mary Hill used to hang out in Cherry Hill Park
The game 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 used to love 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 smart 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
And she said okay
She went away to play a one man game
And since that day it ain't been the same
Cause Mary Hill was such a thrill after dark
Yeah in Cherry Hill Park
Now Mary Hill sure was smart down in Cherry Hill Park
Playing games with everyone till way after dark
In Cherry Hill Park (Cherry Hill Park)
In Cherry Hill Park (Cherry Hill Park)
In Cherry Hill Park (Cherry Hill Park)
In Cherry Hill Park (Cherry Hill Park)
In Cherry Hill Park (Cherry Hill Park)

    General Comment" Mary Hill" was the name of a drag queen and Cherry Hill Park was the commonly known name of a small wooded park in the Cherry Hills area of San Francisco. And the reference about the "merry go round" was about her being the "bukake" center of a circle jerk! Why do you think Mary Hill was such a thrill after dark? LoL
    Time to learn a bit about the gay culture during the 60's someplace between the closets and the beginning of the pride movement was the big park "bush queens" era! (Not that there aren't still a few "bush queens" in the world!
    And the actual "Mary Hill" drag queen actually got married to a woman and entered politics The "Man with money" that said "come om
    n honey" was the Republican political machine in San Francisco at that time.
    Another side note: Harvey Milk was the FIRST openly gay man in politics but not the first gay man to severe and was actually killed by another politician that was gay and afraid Harvey was going to "out" him! (But it wasn't "Mary Hill"!
