If your luck is starting to run dry
And you're feeling kind of low and uninspired
Here's a simple fact you can't deny
The Grass Is Always Greener If You're High

You haven't paid your rent since last July
And your landlady is starting to get wise
'Cause you've always got those puffy bloodshot eyes
The Grass is Always Greener If You're High

You'll be floatin' on air, far from all your cares
'Cause life is not as bad as it seems
You'll be dancin' around, and goin' to town
'Cause if you want to lose your weary blues you need a little green.

So if your woman leaves you for another guy
Didn't even leave a note or say goodbye
And you're feelin' so downhearted you could die,
The Grass is Always Greener If You're High.
