ENGLISH COUNTRY GARDEN (Traditional) Jimmie Rodgers - 1962 Also recorded by: Nana Mouskouri; Rolf Harris; Bill Garden Orch; Brothert Jack McDuff Big Band. How many kinds of sweet flowers grow In an English country garden? We'll tell you now of some that we know Those we miss you'll surely pardon Daffodils, heart's ease and flox Meadowsweet and lady smocks Gentian, lupine and tall hollihocks Roses, foxgloves, snowdrops, blue forget-me-nots In an English country garden How many insects come here and go In an English country garden? We'll tell you now of some that we know Those we miss you'll surely pardon Fireflies, moths, gnats and bees Spiders climbing in the trees Butterflies drift in the gentle breeze There are snakes, ants that sting And other creeping things In an English country garden How many songbirds fly to and fro In an English country garden? We'll tell you now of some that we know Those we miss you'll surely pardon Bobolink, cuckoo and quail Tanager and cardinal Bluebird, lark, thrush and nightingale There is joy in the spring When the birds begin to sing In an English country garden How many kinds of sweet flowers grow In an English country garden? We'll tell you now of some that we know Those we miss you'll surely pardon Daffodils, heart's ease and flox Meadowsweet and lady smocks Gentain, lupine and tall hollihocks Roses, foxgloves, snowdrops, blue forget-me-nots In an English country garden ************************* As recorded by JIMMIE RODGERS: How many kinds of sweet flowers grow In an English country garden? I'll tell you now of some that I know And those I miss you'll surely pardon Daffodils, heart's ease and flox Meadowsweet and lady smocks Gentain, lupine and tall hollihocks Roses, foxgloves, snowdrops, forget-me-nots In an English country garden (In an English country garden) How many insects come here and go Through our English country garden? I'll tell you now of some that I know And those I miss you'll surely pardon Fireflies, moths and bees Spiders climbing in the trees Butterflies that sway on the cool gentle breeze Their are snakes, ants that sting And creeping things In an English country garden (In an English country garden) How many songbirds fly to and fro Through our English country garden? I'll tell you now of some that I know And those I miss you'll surely pardon Bobolink, cuckoo and quail Tanager and cardinal Bluebird, lark, thrush and nightingale There is joy in the spring When the birds begin to sing In an English country garden (In an English country garden) Robin (Robin, robin) Don't forget the robin (Don't forget the robin) Robin (Robin, robin) Don't forget the robin (Whistle........FADE) ************************** As recorded by ROLF HARRIS (Traditional - Re-arranged by Robert Jordan & Cecil Sharp): How many gentle flowers grow In an English country garden? I'll tell you now of some of them I know And those I miss you'll surely pardon Daffodils, heart's ease and flox Meadowsweet and lilies, stocks Gentle lupins and tall hollyhocks Roses, foxgloves, snowdrops and forget-me-nots In an English country garden How many insects build their homes In an English country garden? I'll tell you now of some of them I know And those I miss I trust you will pardon Dragonflies and moths and bees Spiders falling from the trees Butterflies sway in the cool gentle breeze There are wasps' empty homes And tiny little gnomes In an English country garden How many songbirds..... SPOKEN: Actually, I've seen some of these gardens they talk about. And the sort of impression you get is that it's.... Wet underfoot and the leaves are thick with soot In an English country garden Newspapers torn and strewn across the lawn In an english country garden Litter, garbage in the yards Little doggies' calling cards One scraggy rosebud peering through the weeds For they've all downed tools While they do their football pools In an English country garden Market, join the Common Market Market, join the Common Market.....FADE (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - April 2006) *******************************
