ROSE GARDEN
I beg your pardon,
I never promised you a rose garden.
Along with the sunshine
There's gotta be a little rain sometime.
When you take you gotta give
So live and let live and let go -
I beg your pardon,
I never promised you a rose garden...

I could promise you things
Like big diamond rings,
But you don't find roses growin' on stalks of glover,
So you better think it over.
When it's sweet talking you
Could make it come true,
I would give you the world right now on a silver platter,
But what would it matter...
So smile for a while and let's be jolly,
Love shouldn't be so melancholy,
Come along and share the good times while we can.

I beg your pardon,
I never promised you a rose garden.
Along with the sunshine
There's gotta be a little rain sometime.
I beg your pardon,
I never promised you a rose garden...

I could sing you a tune
And promise you the moon,
But if that's what it takes to hold you,
I'd just as soon let you go,
But there's one thing I want you to know -
You'd better look before you leap,
Still waters run deep
And there won't always be someone there to pull you out...
And you know what I'm talking about,
So smile for a while and let's be jolly,
Love shouldn't be so melancholy,
Come along and share the good times while we can...

I beg your pardon,
I never promised you a rose garden,
Along with the sunshine
There's gotta be a little rain sometime.....
