Eric The Gardener

Original version (8:24)

Julius Caesar came,
Saw, conquered, went away
’Cause it rained here all the time.
Too many sniffs and colds
Got up his Roman nose
So he left it all behind

For Eric the gardener to find.
Eric the gardener.
Eric the gardener will find.
Eric the gardener.

Julius Caesar knew
That when his life was through
Something of him would stay behind
Not in a Roman tomb
Or an Italian womb
But buried deep in English slime

For Eric the gardener to find.
Eric the gardener.
Eric the gardener will find.
Eric the gardener.

Julius Caesar sleeps
Soundly beneath your feet
With the rest of humankind.
Dig deep and dig some more,
Dig to the planet’s core,
Dig till you’ve gone out of your mind,

But all you will ever really find
Is Eric the gardener.
All you can ever hope to find
Is Eric the gardener.
Eric the gardener will find.
Eric the gardener.
Eric the gardener will find.
Eric the gardener.
