There were the trees, see the grass, a thing gets inspired.
Said "This is the place I will try," and he did.
Stood in the dark, sat a man who beckoned him in,
But leaving his grass was a sin, but he did.

Cucumber Castle be ever so humble it's home.
He saw the light in the cellar reflect in his eyes,
Yet early that morning was he to receive a surprise.
Cucumber Castle be ever so humble it's home.
Cucumber Castle be ever so humble it's home.

Said 'Are you leaving or are you receiving my friend,
Doesn't need any money till then" and he did .
He said "I'm the owner,not you, and this is my stead,
So give it to me now I'm dead, and he did , said:

Cucumber Castle be ever so humble it's home.
Cucumber Castle be ever so humble it's home.

    General Comment
    It is easy to forget that the Bee Gees were remarkably young when their first album -which includes this song- was released. The songwriters, Barry and Robin Gibb, were 20 and 17. Their early lyrics are odd and feel incomplete, but the melodies (especially in their first few albums) are astonishing good. They are clearly the best of the '66-68 Beatles-like bands.

    Yeah, my question is this. Did the fool who put up these lyrics (lyrics which Google has chosen to highlight, even though they are wrong) even listen to the song. "a thing gets inspired" is not correct, and if you bothered to play the song you would know that. The correct lyric has always been "a Pinkerton spy", idiots.

    My Opinion
    Where to begin? With something so desperately inept? I'll begin at the end. Nothing happens or is shared or is worth sharing. Quite how or why the 1967 Polydor A&R didn't compulsorily assign them a lyricist is anyone's guess. A real shame because the music is playful psyche-orch-pop of the highest calibre.
