In My Garden of Love

video
Benny Hill - My Garden of Love

The lyrics :

In my garden of love

Now there’s a rose for the way my spirits rose when we met
A forget-me-not to remind me to remember not to forget
A pine tree for the way I pined over you
And an ash for the day I ashed you to be true

And the sun and the rain fell from up above
And landed on the earth below
In my garden of love

Now there’s a beetroot for the day you said that you’d beetroot to me
A sweet pea for the sweet way you always used to smiled at me
But you had friends who needed you
There was Ferdy, there was Liza
So, just for them, I put down a load of ferdy-liza

And the sun and the rain fell from up above
And landed on the earth below
In my garden of love

Oh, Gus the gardener’s left now and you went with him, too
The fungus here reminds me of the fun Gus is having with you
The rockery’s a mockery, with weeds it’s overgrown
The fuchsia’s gone, I couldn’t face the fuchsia all alone

And my tears fell like raindrops from the sky above
And poisoned all the flowers in my garden of love

THat was my reaction too. I also wondered if it was a real pop song. (as an aside, his shirt & tie combo is a doosey)
