IF I SHOULD PLANT A TINY SEED OF LOVE (Jas W. Tate (m) Ballard MacDonald (l)) Clarice Mayne - 1909 Dora Lyric - 1909 Harry Carlton - 1909 Frank Summers - 1909 Molly Maloney - 1910 The Victorian Quartette - 1933 Stanley Holloway - 1960 Luigi Risotto - 1975 Also recorded by: The Dead Victorians; Charlie Kunz; Ian Whitcomb; Norman Blair. Busy little honey bees were buzzing to and fro, Humming in the Summer air, Gathering the honey and the little drops of dew, That lay within the blossoms fair. A youth and a maid Thro' a garden strayed, And the youth seemed out of sorts, So the maid with a smile just to tease him said, "I'll give a penny for your thoughts". "I was wondering", said he, "If I should plant a tiny seed of love, In the garden of your heart, Would it grow to be a great big love some day, Or would it die and fade away? Would you care for it and tend it ev'ry day, Till the time when we must part, If I should plant a tiny seed of love, In the garden of your heart?". "Don't you know the saying that is very old and true?", Shyly asked the blushing maid, "Somewhere I have heard it said, Or somewhere I have read That love's a bloom that will not fade". "Ah! yes", said the youth, "There's another truth, And you've heard it I dare say, For I've read or been told just the same as you, True love will blossom in a day". "Be the gardener", said he, "If I should plant a tiny seed of love, In the garden of your heart, Would it grow to be a great big love some day, Or would it die and fade away? Would you care for it and tend it ev'ry day, Till the time when we must part, If I should plant a tiny seed of love, In the garden of your heart?". (Contributed by Peter Akers - March 2016)
