There’s a garden in my house
A garden full of flowers
I love to be there all the time
And spend just hours and hours

There are roses, every kind
And lilies in the pool
Sunflowers looking trim and bright
And jasmines white and cool.

There’s a lawn of velvet grass
So soft and oh so green
Like a carpet beneath my feet
The nicest I have seen.

There are bulbuls, parrots too
And koels in the tree
And sparrows, sparrows everywhere

And butterflies so free!

The frisky squirrel with his nuts;
I’ll show them all to you
And after you have met them all
You’ll love them like I do!
