my garden of love – benny hill lyrics

the sun and the rain fell from up above
and landed on the earth below
in my garden of love

now there’s a rose for the way my spirits rose when we met
a forget-me-not to remind me to remember not to forget
a pine tree for the way i pined over you
and an ash for the day i ashed you to be true

the sun and the rain fell from up above
and landed on the earth below
in my garden of love

now there’s a palm tree that we planted when we had our first date
a turnip for the way you always used to turnip late
your mother and your cousin, chris, they often used to come
so, in their honour, i have raised a nice chris-an’-the-mum

the sun and the rain fell from up above
and landed on the earth below
in my garden of love

now there’s a beetroot for the day you said that you’d beetroot to me
a sweet pea for the sweet way you always smiled at me
but you had friends who needed you
there was ferdy, there was liza
so, just for them, i put down a load of ferdy-liza

the sun and the rain fell from up above
and landed on the earth below
in my garden of love

but gus the gardener’s left now and you went with him, too
the fungus there reminds me of the fun gus is having with you
now the rockery’s a mockery, with weeds it’s overgrown
the fuchsia’s gone, i couldn’t face the fuchsia all alone

and my tears fell like raindrops from the sky above
and poisoned all the flowers in my garden of love
