Lyrics to song When Your Garden's Overgrown by Paul Weller

Bobby's off on holiday
Away across the sea
Setting up his easel
A new scene to see

Says that he's had enough
Of standing in the rain
Now he's looking for the good life
With European pain

Did you know
Your garden's overgrown -
And what is shown?

Meeting all these pretty girls
Singing golden hair
He's in touch with the painter's mind
And Syd's unflinching stare
Drinking wine in the Moulin Rouge
Sipping kaffee in Berlin
Might take in the coloured lights
In the city they call sin -

He could see
The writing on the wall -
Ten feet tall

But oh there are times
He wished the world
Would fade just into sight
And oh, the feelings that changed
Were thicker than the brush
Strokes of fame

Now he rides the dirt roads
Of old southern Spain
And when senoritas sing
He can hear them say -

Did you know
Your garden's overgrown -
And what is shown?

He could see
The writing on the wall
Ten feet tall
