This is one of my favourite 'Songs for every occaission' seems to go down well everywhere - especially with kids. Hope you enjoy it
Well, I'm sitting in the garden, in my little Noddy suit Sparrow on my fishing rod and frogspawn in my boot It's pouring down with rain - I've got water on the brain As I sit here by the pond like King Canute
The kids have knocked my nose off, my pain is getting thin The liberties they take with me, it really is a sin There's a pidgeon I can see, and he's aiming right at me And the gardener strikes his matches on my chin
Once I used to be a handsome king upon a throne. I quarrelled with a fairy and she turned me into stone I sit here on this toadstool, every day I'm all alone Well, it's not much fun being a gnome.
I sit here with my fishing rod, the fishes never bite And anyway it's been so long I've lost my appetite It's still pouring down with rain, God! here's that pidgeon back again Has anybody got some dynamite?
There's a doggy comes to see me every evening after tea I used to wonder why he was so very fond of me And then I found out why - when he hit me in the eye Have you ever benn mistaken for a tree?
So I sit here in the garden, in my little Noddy suit Sparrow on my fishing rod and frogspawn in my boot It's still p*ssing down with rain, I've still got water on the brain As I sit here by the pond like King Canute - Rule Brittania! I sit here by the pond like King Canute
