Chorus:
I beg your pardon
I never promised you a rose garden
Along with the sunshine
There's gotta be a little rain sometime

When you take you gotta give so live and let live
Or let go oh oh whoa whoa...

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'd better think it over
When it's 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
Life shouldn't be so melancholy
Come along and share the good times while we can

(Repeat chorus)

I beg your 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
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
Life shouldn't be so melancholy
Come along and share the good times while we can

(Repeat chorus)
