Don't be on the outside looking on the inside
If you're on in the inside looking on the outside
Things that look, invitin' seldom are exciting
Stay on your side

Don't be on the wrong side looking on the right side
If you're on the right side looking on the wrong side
Everything you see don't really have to be
So stay on your side

The grass looks greener when it's on the other side
Seein' ain't believin', looks are so deceivin'
Don't be taken for a ride

Don't be on the outside looking on the inside
If you're on in the inside looking on the outside
Take a fool's advice, it's worth the sacrifice
To stay on your side

The grass looks greener when it's on the other side
Seein' ain't believin', looks are so deceivin'
Don't be taken for a ride

Don't be on the outside looking on the inside
If you're on in the inside looking on the outside
Take a fool's advice, it's worth the sacrifice
To stay on your side

Take a fool's advice, it's worth the sacrifice
To stay on your side, to stay on your side
