Day 100 – Lynn Anderson – I Beg Your Pardon, I Never Promised You (A Rose Garden)
Another song I that came to my attention from the Zodiac Movie Soundtrack. Such a good song, and Lynn Anderson was, indeed, very beautiful.
I could sing you a tune or 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:
Love 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 gotta be a little rain sometimes.
