You know you're all alone
Your friends they aren't at home
Everybody's gone to the garden
As you look into the trees
You can look but you don't see
The flowers seem to tease you at the garden
Everybody's there but you don't seem to care
What's it with you man, and this garden

Turned into my worst phobia
A crazy man's utopia
If you're lost no one can show ya
But it sure was glad to know ya
Only poor boys take a chance
On the garden's song and dance
Feel her flowers as they wrap around
But only smart boys do without

You can find it all inside
No need to wrestle with your pride
No you ain't losin' your mind
You're just in the garden
They can lead you to yourself
Or you can throw it on the shelf
But you know you can look inside
For the garden

I wasn't really scared, lost my virginity there
To a gypsy with blond hair but now no one seems to care
Like a mouse inside a maze wandering round for daze
With a smile upon my face I never wanna leave this place
Only poor boys take a chance on the garden's song and dance
Feel her flowers as they wrap around
But only smart boys do without

Turned into my worst phobia
A crazy man's utopia
If you're lost no one can show ya
But it sure was glad to know ya
Bye bye, so long, bye bye
It's glad to know ya, bye bye
Bye bye
So long
