"Picket Fences" as written by and Chely Wright....
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
Who's lives are still spinnin' around

Tell me what's so great about picket fences
Paintin' them's such a mess
And a big backyard where kids can play
I'd pro'bly never get a moments rest
And settin' 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
But 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

Tell me what's so great about picket fences
Paintin' them's such a mess
And a big backyard where kids can play
I'd pro'bly never get a moments rest
And settin' 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

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