    Lyrics

    (Joe South)

    I beg you pardon, I never promised you a rose garden
    Along with the sunshine there's gotta 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
    When 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.

    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.

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