Chely Wright – Picket Fences lyrics
Little boys and little girls dream of big, big things.
They're taught at a tender age just what life should bring.
Get a job say I do and settle yourself down.
But what about those of us whose lives are still spinnin' around.

Chorus:

Tell me what's so great about picket fences.
Paintin' them is such a mess.
And a big back yard where kids can play.
I'd probably never get a moments rest.
And setting the table for five at five.
Only means more dishes to load.
What's so great about picket fences.
I guess I'll never know.

Here I am in my prime at least they tell me so.
And if I go to sleep at night I always go alone.
I guess that I could have it all and someone by my side.
But I can't take the give and take the price is just too high,

Repeat Chorus

Tell me what's so great about picket fences.
I guess I'll never know.
