Malvern Winter Gardener

I’m the Malvern winter gardener
Sat out on a deck chair in the snow
A famous rock star in my prime
All the ladies standing in line
Not that any one of you would know oh no
Not that any one of you would know
Not that anyone

I’m a Malvern Winter Gardener
I played here a thousand years ago
You were always my best friend
Until the good times came to an end
The band split up there was nowhere left to go
Not that any one of you would know
Not that any one

Cause nothing grows around here anymore
I’m just trying to keep the weeds at bay and the wolf from the door
I can see that very spot where the cover of Argus was shot
Ted Turner used to come by a lot

To see the Malvern winter gardener
Sweeping leaves and watching the flowers grow oh wo
Hiding in the potting shed
Listening to The Grateful Dead
I get a little off my head but I go with the flow
Not that any one of you would know
Not that any one

And I saw Man I saw Budgie Eddie and the Hotrods Ozzy,
Sassafras, Wishbone Ash, Be Bop Deluxe and The Clash
Were the last band in town
Before my world came tumbling down
The day she left me in this little old town

Where there’s not a lot going on today
So I take the afternoon off
Sit in our favourite café
We split up a way back when
I still think of her every now n then
Not that anyone of you would know oh no
Not that anyone of you would know

Not that anyone

I’m the Malvern Winter Gardener
