  1. Bamboo and Roses

Lyrics

Originally written by my dad, Tom Williams, in 1971

Once a long time ago
There was a land I know
Shining in the morning like a roof of tin

What happened to the garden?
What happened to the garden?
Where did all the Bamboo and Roses go to?
And to who does the garden now belong?

Once there was a prince so fair
He had copper colored hair
He had soft, green eyes like Chinese jade

What happened to the garden?
What happened to the garden?
Where did all the Bamboo and Roses go to?
And to who does that boy now belong?

Once there was a different time
With much before and less behind
It was much quieter when bamboo and roses grew.

What happened to the garden?
What happened to the garden?
Where did all the Bamboo and Roses go to?
And to who does the time now belong?
