Mary Hopkin – Kew Gardens

Track from Apple APPLE 34 (7" vinyl)

Mary Hopkin - Let My Name Be Sorrow
Kew Gardens


The air was cool on lily pools
Hazy lazy
And here and there he’d stop to stare
Admiring all the flowers
Wandering round for hours

The sun was warm across the lawn
Scented blended
He saw her linger
And With her finger open up a rose
Standing on tip toes

Suddenly the rain came flurrying
Sending the two of them scurrying
Helter skelter for the shelter
And feeling bolder in the big pagoda
He gently enquired her name
And they waited till the sunshine came

Kew gardens

And for a while
The griffin smiled
Kindly, blindly
Till the evening bell broke the spell
And sadly they said goodbye
And one of the griffins cried

In Kew Gardens
