Everybody knows that the grass is close to the ground
Fifteen unces and a half are close to a pound
Everybody knows that the leaves are close to the tree
But there's yet to be for them to see
Things as close together as you and me.

Everybody knows Niagara is close to the Falls
And the fact is known that windows are close to the walls
Everybody knows that Nashville is close to Tennessee
But there's yet to be for them to see
Things as close together as you and me.

Grass will wilt when you pull it from the ground
You'll lose weight when you take away a pound
Leaves will die when you chop down the tree
Like I would if you would taken from me.

Niagara wouldn't be seen without Falls
Windows wouldn't be broke without walls
Nashville's in Tennessee
And love will always be in you and and me.

Everybody knows that freight trains are close to the track
And the truth is known that shoe soles are close to the tracks
Everybody knows that the sea shores are close to the sea
But there's yet to be for them to see
Things as close together as you and me.

Oh, things as close together as you and me...
