Song Lyrics

How many kinds of sweet flowers grow

 

In an English country garden?
I'll tell you now of some I know
And those I'll miss you'll surely pardon
Daffodils, heart's ease and flox
Meadowsweet and lilly stalks
Gentain, lupine and tall hollihocks
Roses, foxgloves, snowdrops, forget-me-nots
In an English country garden.

How many insects come here and go
In an English country garden?
I'll tell you now of some I know
Those I miss you'll surely pardon
Dragonflies, moths and bees
Spiders climbing from the trees
Butterflies flit in the gentle breeze
There are snakes, ants that sting (ah!)
Other creepy things
In an English country garden.

How many kinds of sweet flowers grow
In an English country garden?
I'll tell you now of some I know
Those I miss you'll surely pardon
Daffodils, hearts ease and flox
Meadowsweet and lily stocks
Gentian, lupine and tall hollyhocks
Roses, foxgloves, snowdrops, forget-me-nots
In an English country garden.

Robin, don't forget the Robin.
Robin, don't forget the Robin.
