I never promised You a Rosegarden


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 oh oh oh oh oh oh
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 fields of clover
so you better think it over.

When it's sweet talking you
would 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 on 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 got to be a little rain sometimes.

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.

So look before you leap still water runs deep
and there won't always be someone to pull you out.
and you know what I'm talkin' about.

So smile for a while and let's be jolly
love shouldn't be so melancholy
come on 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 got to be a little rain sometimes.
