  • Oh, I once had something
    Something that was so good
    Better than the last thing I touched
    Then turned right around on that something
    And figured I didn't like that much

    Oh yeah, the grass is green
    But can you tell me, can you feel it, I want to feel it
    Oh yeah, the grass is green
    But I think I stained my jeans and now everybody knows thah I been in it

    I am a believer
    But as I was standing
    In line, somebody took my place
    Yes, I'm a believer, never mind what they say
    I got so tired along the way

    Oh yeah, the grass is green
    But can you tell me, can you feel it, I just want to feel it
    Oh yeah, the grass is green
    But I think I stained my jeans and now everybody knows thah I been in it

    I've got a skeleton that's deeper than any closet
    And a bomb that I will drop on it
    But you opened up to me
    'Til I could only see the beauty in your dishonesty

    Oh yeah, the grass is green
    But can you tell me, can you feel it, you just want to feel it
    Oh yeah the grass is green
    But it think I stained my jeans and now, baby, you can tell that I been in it

    Oh yeah, the grass is green but it's not what it seems cause when you think
    You want it you just need it
    Forget just what you need
    The clock is ticking and this life is a train, man, I think you're on it
    But it's what you wanted, and what you needed
    It's what you wanted, and what you needed
    Or is it what I needed and what you wanted Writer/s: MICHAEL A. ELIZONDO, NELLY KIM FURTADO
