Who Sang Rose Garden? Ray Conniff

Release information
Release Date: 2002
length: 2:41
I beg your pardon,
I never promised you a rose garden!
Along with the sunshine,
There's gotta be a little rain sometime!

When you take you gotta give,
So live and let live,
Or let go, wo-wo-wo!
I beg your pardon,
I never promised you a rose garden!

I could promise you things
Like big diamond rings,
But you don't find roses growin'
On tops of clover,
So you better think it over!

When it's sweet-talkin' you
Could make it come true,
I would give you the world right now
On a silver platter,
But what would it matter?

So smile for a while and let's be jolly,
Love shouldn't be so melancholy!
Come along and share the good things while we can!

I beg your pardon,
I never promised you a rose garden!
Along with the sunshine,
There's gotta be a little rain sometime!

I beg your pardon,
I never promised you a rose garden!

I could sing you a tune
That promised you the moon,
But if that's what it takes to hold you,
I'd just as soon let you go,
But there's one thing I want you to know;

You'd better look before you leap,
Still waters run deep,
And there won't always bev someone there
To hold you out,
And you know what I'm talking about!

So smile for a while and let's be jolly,
Love shouldn't be so melancholy!
Come along and share the good things while we can!

I beg your pardon,
I never promised you a rose garden!
Oh,I beg your pardon,
I never promised you a rose garden!
