the grass is greener (pop’s drunken confession) lyrics – wall of voodoo

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 gr*ss 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 gr*ss 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-sh*gga-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 gr*ss 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 gr*ss 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 b*m and
hey, c’mon…”

they say the gr*ss 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…
