All Gone

Very much, very much,
Very much, much, much,
I’m a-walking ’round my garden.

Very much, very much,
Very much, much, much,
To wave all my flowers bye-bye.

It is sad, very sad,
It is very, very sad,
Seeing all my petals falling.

It is sad, it is sad,
It is very, very sad,
To wave all my flowers bye-bye.

They were here, they were here,
They gave cheer, cheer, cheer,
As I walked around my garden.

They were here, they were here,
They gave cheer, cheer, cheer,
Nor once had I thought of “bye-bye.”

It is woe, don’t you know,
It is woe, it is so,
To wave all my flowers bye-bye.

And I turn to my tree
And the high thing I see
Is a last leaf waving bye-bye!
