Gurney Lyr Add: My Garden of Love (Benny Hill) (6) Lyr Add: MY GARDEN OF LOVE (Benny Hill) 10 Sep 15

A lyric from the late comedian. It is on FaceBook if you want the tune.

As recorded by Benny Hill

CHORUS: The sun and the rain fell from up above
And landed on the earth below in my garden of love.

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. CHORUS

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 chrysanthemum. CHORUS

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 Ferdie; there was Liza,
So just for them I've put down a load of fertiliser. CHORUS

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.
