(Flemish folk tune, Lyrics by Richard Compton, publ. 1921)
1. Your rake and shovel and wheelbarrow bring;
Let’s plant us a garden this morning in spring;
Dig little trenches, pull out all the weeds;
Pour in some water, then drop in your seeds.
2. Be sure you cover them all ere you go;
Now rake the top over and leave them to grow.
Shine, merry sunlight, and fall, gentle rain.
Tend to my garden till I come again.
