  • You know I spent a little time out in Malibu
    I spent quite a bit down in Nashville too
    'Cause I like the beach and loves to honky tonk
    But the place that I call home
    Is where I never have to feel alone
    It's the place where I was raised and I was born

    And the grass don't get much greener
    And life can't get no sweeter
    I got a funny cigarette and a two-dollar bottle of wine
    And there's no need for new beginnings
    More money or window trimmings
    And if the good Lord's willin', I'm a keep on chillin', refillin' and flyin' high

    Flyin' high
    In an old lawn chair
    Flyin' high
    With an ice cold beer
    Got nowhere to go, no place I'd rather be
    Yeah the grass don't get much greener
    And life can't get no sweeter
    And if the good Lord's willin', I'm a keep on chillin', refillin' and flyin' high

    You know I've traveled on yachts through the south of France
    Think I even got a pair of Versace pants
    But all that makes me feel is like a fool
    'Cause a pontoon boat, and a bottle of Beam
    A couple good friends, and some cut off jeans
    Has made us realize, you can't buy cool

    And the grass don't get much greener
    And life can't get no sweeter
    I got a funny cigarette and a two-dollar bottle of wine
    And there's no need for new beginnings
    More money or window trimmings
    And if the good Lord's willin', I'm a keep on chillin', refillin' and flyin' high

    Flyin' high
    In an old lawn chair
    Flyin' high
    And my family near
    Nowhere to go no place I'd rather be
    Yeah they mock me because I stand out
    But I ain't never had to take a handout
    And if the good Lord's willin', I'm a keep on chillin', refillin' and flyin' high Writer/s: MARLON YOUNG, ROBERT J RITCHIE
