to grow or not to grow, & rose garden

that is the question!
such a flowery shakespearian dilemma!
that i have to face this cloudy morning



my film camera here
still working...

and to top this flowery day
a song that I grew up to!
my mother used to listen to this song endlessly!
in the early 70's
so I know ALL the lyrics...
a great classic country 70's songs by Miss Lynn Anderson

this song and many others
have been central theme of the DJs list
I get via e-mail...

so... I beg your pardon
but here are the video & the lyrics
be a good cowboy to this cute & skinny lovely lady
and sing along w/her & her retro friends...



I beg your pardon,
I never promised you a rose garden.
Along with the sunshine,
There's gotta be a little rain sometimes.
When you take, you gotta give, so live and let live,
Or let go.
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 stalks of clover.
So you better think it over.
Well, if 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 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.

Instrumental break.

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

I could sing you a tune or 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 talkin' 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 your pardon,
I never promised you a rose garden.
Along with the sunshine,
There's gotta be a little rain sometimes.
