Hi all,
Anyone know the full lyrics to this song
    'Within my father's garden, the flowers grow beyond compare, [repeat]
    and birds of every colour fly in from everywhere,
    Oh! i want to be near you, you're the one the one the one,
    I want to be near you, you're the one for me..'
Any knowledge of it gratefully received, it was one of my favourites when I was little and now my 2 year old loves it too
thanks, Ali.

Here are the french lyrics and tune
Aupre de ma blonde

Its odd I had put it in the thread about songs we sang at school. The tune was used for a BBC Time and Tune song in the late 60s.. In my fathers garden the Lortils are at play.

It's a charming song, alicj.

It's so nice to hear from a mother (you) who sings to her child.

Lyrics and notes copied from folkinfo.org:
(That page also has sheet music.)

IN MY FATHER'S GARDEN

Now in my father's garden are flowers beyond compare.
Now in my father's garden are flowers beyond compare,
And birds of every colour fly in from everywhere.

CHORUS: I want to be near you.
You're the one for me, for me.
I want to be near you.
You're the one for me.

And birds of every colour fly in from everywhere.
And birds of every colour fly in from everywhere.
The turtledove and partridge, the quail is also there.

The turtledove and partridge, the quail is also there.
The turtledove and partridge, the quail is also there.
The little dove both night and day sings on without a care.

The little dove both night and day sings on without a care.
The little dove both night and day sings on without a care.
He sings for all the maidens such melodies so rare.

Notes: French. The tune is "Aupres de Ma Blonde".
