[Verse 1] Why should we take the promises tomorrow may not pay / When we can have the happiness, that crowds our lives today? [Refrain] In the garden of tomorrow, will the roses be more fair? / Will we find relief from the sorrow, will there be more sunshine there? / For each flower that will blossom, some will die and fade away, / Oh! I’d so much rather, all my flow’rs [flowers] gather / From the gardens of today. [Verse 2] In all the gardens of the world, There is no other flow’r [flower] / As precious as the blossoming of love’s first golden hour.
