I beg you pardon, I never promised you a rose garden.

Along with the sunshine there's got to be a little rain sometimes
When you take you got to give so live and let live or let go
I beg you 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 stalks of clover
So you better think it over
Well, it's sweet talking 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 times while we can
I beg you pardon I never promised you a rose garden
Along with the sunshine there's gotta be a little rain sometimes.

--- Instrumental ---

I beg you pardon I never promised you a rose garden
I could sing you a tune and promise 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 better look before you leap
Still waters run deep
And there won't always be someone there to pull 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 times while we can
I beg you pardon I never promised you a rose garden
Along with the sunshine there's gotta be a little rain sometimes...
