EVERYTHING IN THE GARDEN'S LOVELY
 
div
 
We see a dossy youth go out in all his extra best
And everything in the garden's lovely
A pair of patents, pair of kids, and lovely flowered vest
And everything in the garden's lovely
But suddenly, while passing by a house that's in repair,
A painter shouts, “Take care! Look out you chap down there”
Then all at once a pot of paint comes flying through the air
And everything in the garden's lovely.

Chorus: Everything in the garden is absolutely grand
Everything in the garden is great, you'll understand
Wallop comes the painter's pot
And the dandy cops the lot,
Then everything in the garden's lovely.
A tasty little tit-bit; Yes a breach of promise case
And everything in the garden's lovely
The maiden gives her evidence, with blushes on her face
And everything in the garden's lovely
“He said he'd marry me my Lord his love he oft confessed
Bought presents of the best and pressed me to his breast
And if you please your Lordship I I'll whisper all the rest
And everything in the garden's lovely.”


Chorus: Everything in the garden is absolutely grand
Everything in the garden is great, you'll understand
You will soon guess by his face
As he listens to her case
That everything in the garden's lovely.


A pair of old pals go to quiz the ladies in the sea
And everything in the garden's lovely
One pair of opera glasses quite sufficient ought to be
And everything in the garden's lovely
Says Smithers, “There's a nice fat lump! A slap up sort of gel
You have first look, old swell she's ripping I can tell”
Young Jenkins has a look, and laughs, then Smithers looks as well
And everything in the garden's lovely.

Chorus: Everything in the garden is absolutely grand
Everything in the garden is great, you'll understand
But, says Smithers, “On my life
Dash it all its my own wife”
And everything in the garden's lovely.


A lady on her Gee-Gee canters down a country lane
And everything in the garden's lovely
And, close behind, a smart young groom is following in her train
And everything in the garden's lovely
But suddenly her horse takes fright; the brute begins to shy,
The lady gives a cry, then in the hedge close by
She tumbles, while her groom laughs,
Till the tears fall from his eye
And everything in the garden's lovely.

Chorus: Everything in the garden is absolutely grand
Everything in the garden is great, you'll understand
She says “Why this laughter Sam?”
He says, “Couldn't help it Ma'am”
Everything in the garden's lovely.


There's a handy bit of China far across the sea
And everything in the garden's lovely
Possessors of that tea set all the powers want to be
‘Cos everything in the garden's lovely
Japan said, “China looks well on a japanesey tray”
France tried to hold the sway till John Bull barred the way
He said “You want the whole set? Oh where do I come in, eh?”
And everything in the garden's lovely.

Chorus: Everything in the garden is absolutely grand
Everything in the garden is great, you'll understand
They want sixteen million cash
Else the China goes to smash
And everything in the garden's lovely.
