Whose garden was this
It must have been lovely
Did it have flowers
I’ve seen pictures of flowers
And I’d love to have smelled one

Whose river was this
You say it ran freely
Blue was it’s colour
And I’ve seen blue in some pictures
And I’d love to have been there

Tell me again, I need to know
The forest had trees, the meadows were green
The oceans were blue
And birds really flew
Can you swear that it’s true

Whose grey sky was this
Or was it a blue one
You say they were breezes
I’ve heard records of breezes
And I’d love to have felt one

Tell me again, I need to know
The forest had trees, the meadows were green
The oceans were blue
And birds really flew
Can you swear that it’s true

Whose garden was this
It must have been lovely
Did it have flowers
I’ve seen pictures of flowers
And I’d love to have smelled one

Tell me again, I need to know
Tell me again, I need to know
Tell me again, I need to know
