"The Other Side of the Fence" as written by and Maxwell Andrew/sanders Ramsey....
The grass always look greener
On the other side of the fence, yeah, yeah
But the dog over there might be meaner
On the other side of the fence, yeah, yeah

The car in the driveway looks longer
On the other side of the street, yeah, yeah
Does anything ever go wrong there
On the other side of the street, yeah, yeah?

Stay in your own yard, play in your own yard
Be happy in your own yard
'Cause everything glitters it really ain't gold, yeah

Future always look brighter
On the other side of the tracks, yeah, yeah
But then everybody wants to go over
But they don't want to come back, no, no

They live like kings and queens
On their side of the town, yeah, yeah
But they're gonna have to make room for me and you
On their side of the town, sho' 'nough

To be jealous is a cold thang
With the ice water in your viens
All it brings is misery and pain
Everything glitters it really ain't gold, no
It's not what it looks like, it really ain't gold

No!

'Stead of worry 'bout what you're lacking
Gotta make the most of what you got
'Stead of keepin' up with Mr. Jones
Gotta look out for your own

Stay in your own yard, play in your own yard
Be happy in your own yard, yeah, your own yard

Stay in your own yard, play in your own yard
Happy in your own yard
Everything glitters it really ain't gold
