A song about trading one set of problems for another. And one mans triumph.


Well me and Ol’ Jake were sittin’ at the bar
And he was pourin’ his heart out to me
He said “I just can’t take it any more,
She’s always yappin’ and flappin’ at me

He said “But I met a gal who understands , and I think she’s the one”
He ain’t leaving his troubles behind him, yeah the worst is yet to come

Cuz the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence
But there’s so much fertilizer, and if you had a lick of sense
You’d … a little work in your own yard, an’ pull them weeds ya growin
Cuz the grass don’t get no greener if you ain’t cuttin’ it there at home

Well I ran into Jake again the other day, he said “Man I’m in a world of hurt”
“That little gal I was tellin’ you about, she been treatin’ me like dirt.”
He said “But that’s okay, cuz I met another gal, I (just) know that she’s the one”
I just shook his hand I said “Jake my friend, I think your troubles have just begun”

Cuz the grass…..

That Sweet green grass won’t stay that way too long
If you ain’t learnin nothin’ ‘bout how you mighta done it wrong
That sweet green grass may look good from where you sit
But you hop that fence you better watch out
you might step in it

Well I ran into Jake again the other day, at the Lawn and Garden store
He had a wheelbarrow full of work to do,
and he was headin’ back in for more.
He said “ I’m weedin’ and mowin’ and keepin’ it growin’
thank God it wasn’t all gone”
“Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors grass is my motto from now on”

Cuz the Grass is always Greener
