(Sharpe/Jordan)

How many gentle flowers grow

In an English country garden?

I'll tell you now of some I know

And those I'll miss I hope you'll pardon

Daffodils, heart's ease and flox

Meadowsweet and lilly stalks

Gentain, lupine and tall hollihocks

Roses, foxgloves, snowdrops, forget-me-nots

In an English country garden.

How many insects find their home

In an English country garden?

I'll tell you now of some I know

Those I miss I hope you'll pardon

Dragonflies, moths and bees

Spiders falling from the trees

Butterflies sway in the mild gentle breeze

There are hedgehogs that roam

And little gnomes

In an English country garden.

How many songbirds make their nests

In an English country garden?

I'll tell you now of some I know

Those I miss I hope you'll pardon

Bobolink, coo cooing doves

Robins and the whirlwind thrush

Bluebird, lark, pigeon, nightingale

We all smile in the spring

When the birds all start to sing

In an English country garden.
