"In the Garden" as written by and C. Austin Miles....
[Chorus]
I beg your pardon
I never promised you a rose garden
Along with the sunshine
There's gonna be a little rain sometime
When you think you gotta give live and let live
Or let go oh

I beg your pardon
I never promised you a rose garden

I could promise you things like big diamond rings
But you won't find roses growin' on a stalk of clover
So you better think it over
With a sweet talkin' you
If I 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 Life

Shouldn't be so melancholy Come along and
Share the good times while we can

[Chorus]

I could sing you a tune and promise you the moon
But if that's what it takes to hold you I'd just soon let you go
But there's one thing you ought to know
You better look before you leap, still waters run deep
And there won't always be someone there
To pull you out so you know what I'm talkin' about
So smile for a while and let's be jolly
Life 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 going to be a little rain sometimes
