Wall Of Voodoo – The Grass Is Greener (Pop's Drunken Confession) lyrics

Hey-ho, Daddy's home!
Heeeerrrreeee's Johnny!!!
Where did everybody go??!!
Goodbye Chicago,
Goodbye Miami skies,
"ground control to Major Tom,
My soul been psychodelisized... "

They say the grass is greener
On the other side of the fence
And the meat is sweeter,
It takes two to do the dance.
Man, the girl is a dream!
I ain't seen one like that since...

They say the grass is greener
On the other side of the fence.

Well, the girl from New York
Digs Peter Tork and the girls
From Milwaukee do the Walkie-Talkie.
Cheerleaders in Atlanta do the
Boom-shagga-lagga, shouting
"V-I-C-T-O-R-Y!!!"
They walk and they walk and
They talk and they talk and
Theywalkandtheywalkandthey
Talkandtheytalkandtheywalkand
Theywalkandtheytalkandtheytalk
All night to get it right, but inside

They say the grass is greener
On the other side of the fence
And the meat is sweeter,
It takes two to do the dance.
Man, the girl is a dream!
I ain't seen one like that since...

They say the grass is greener
On the other side of the fence
On the other side of the fence
On the other side of the fence

Jimmy's dad says
"son, there's a small hotel,
Two high on Ten High
And Chantilly. Man! I love the
Smell of another man's life.
I love the smell of another man's wife.
Strike while the iron's hot.
I know it's wrong, but I can't stop.
I love your mom, but I'm a bum and
Hey, c'mon... "

They say the grass is greener
On the other side of the fence
And the meat is sweeter,
It takes two to do the dance.
Man, the girl is a dream!
I ain't seen one like that since...
