  • We are neighbors
    (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
    We are neighbors
    Whether we wanna be or not

    Bom-bom-bom-bom, I told you so
    Bom-bom-bom-bom, didn't you know?
    Bom-bom-bom-bom, I told you so
    Bom-bom-bom-bom, didn't you know?

    If everybody looked the same
    We'd get tired of looking at each other
    You couldn't tell the lady next door
    From your own damn mother

    If variety ain't the spice of life
    Then why are some
    Peppercorn lights so nice?

    You telling me things
    That you can't do
    It's not that you can't
    It's that you just don't want to

    We are neighbors
    We are neighbors
    We are neighbors
    (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
    We are neighbors
    Whether we wanna be or not

    Bom-bom-bom-bom, I told you so
    Bom-bom-bom-bom, didn't you know?
    Bom-bom-bom-bom, I told you so
    Bom-bom-bom-bom, didn't you know?

    You put me in prison in my own house
    (Yes, yes, you did)
    And expect me to be quiet as a mouse
    (Yes, yes, you did)

    When I see it your way
    You let me out
    (Yes, yes, you did)

    But here is something
    To think about
    (Yes, yes, you did)

    The good and
    The bad die together
    Nobody's gonna live
    Forever and ever

    The truth is the light
    That you should know
    Let's walk in
    The sunshine together

    We are neighbors
    (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
    We are neighbors
    We are neighbors
    We are neighbors
    Whether we wanna be or not

    Bom-bom-bom-bom, I told you so
    Bom-bom-bom-bom, didn't you know
    Bom-bom-bom-bom, I told you so
    Bom-bom-bom-bom, didn't you know

    We are neighbors
    (Bom-bom-bom-bom, I told you so)
    (Bom-bom-bom-bom, didn't you know?)
    We are neighbors
    (Bom-bom-bom-bom, I told you so)
    (Bom-bom-bom-bom, didn't you know?)

    We are neighbors
    (Bom-bom-bom-bom, I told you so)
    (Bom-bom-bom-bom, didn't you know?)
    We are neighbors
    (Bom-bom-bom-bom, I told you so)
    (Bom-bom-bom-bom, didn't you know?)

    We are neighbors
    (Bom-bom-bom-bom, I told you so)
    (Bom-bom-bom-bom, didn't you know?)
    We are neighbors
    (Bom-bom-bom-bom, I told you so)
    (Bom-bom-bom-bom, didn't you know?)

    We are neighbors
    (Bom-bom-bom-bom, I told you so)
    (Bom-bom-bom-bom, didn't you know?) Writer/s: EUGENE RECORD, QUINTON JOSEPH
