The fence is long and high where we love

You can't see the other side where they live

I've spied with my little eye

And I've sighed with my little sigh

But it seems I've given all that I can give

Every hour I have to count to ten

And a thousand times I've thought again

But it seems I've given all that I can give



Is there anyone there

Here is the fence that they built

{over there}

This is the fence that hate built

Is anyone there

{over there}



This is the fence that turns one into two

I want to break through but I'm though if I do

I've tried with my little try

And I've cried with my little cry

But it seems that the gate holds the only clue



Every hour I have to count to ten

And a thousand times I've though again

But it seems I've given all that I can give



Is there anyone there

Here is the fence that they built

{over there}

This is the fence that hate built

Is anyone there

{over there}



[brilliant solo from "stan the man"]



Every hour I have to count to ten

And a thousand times I've thought again



Is there anyone there

Here is the fence that they built

{over there}

This is the fence that hate built

Is anyone there

{over there}



Is there anyone there

Here is the fence that they built

{over there}

This is the fence that hate built

Is anyone there

{over there}



But it seems I've give all that I can give



Is there anyone there

Here is the fence that they built

{over there}

This is the fence that hate built

Is anyone there

{over there}
