10000 Maniacs – I Never Promised You A Rose Garden lyrics

I beg your pardon
I never promised you a rose garden
Along with the sunshine, there's gotta be a little rain sometimes
I could promise you things,
Like big diamond rings
But if that's what it takes to hold you
I'd as soon as let you go
But there's one thing I want you to know
Oh, smile for a while and lets be jolly
Love shouldn't be so melancholy
Come along, and share the good times 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 sometimes
I said, Oh oh oh oh, I beg your pardon
I never promised you a rose garden
