Taking Notes and Stealing Quotes on this song

Cover-version

* 

 

I got these thoughts keep stealing through my mind

I canít be the one thatís left behind

No matter how much I try to catch him up

He always seems to have a fuller cup

 

The envy nearly sends me to the brink

Sometimes I get so crazy I canít think

He keeps on buying better sets of wheels

He donít have no idea just how I feel

 

     Heís my neighbour (Weíre the neighbours)

     But Iím a craver (Heís a craver)

     After more

     Heís my neighbour (Heís my neighbour)

     And I wish he didnít have to live next door

 

Iím living in a semi, heís in a detached

I wish his Jaguar would crash

His wife makes mine look like a sorry sight

I hear their wild loving through the night

 

     Heís my neighbour (Iím your neighbour)

     Iím a craver (Heís a craver)

     After more (More)

     Heís my neighbour (Iím your neighbour)

     But I wish he didnít have to live next door (Door Ö)

 

Voices of anger keep running through my head

Rage that makes me see bright red

His fence is of a much better quality

The flowers in his garden laugh at me (ha-ha, ha-ha)

 

     Heís my neighbour (Weíre the neighbours)

     Iím a craver (Considerably richer than you)

     After more

     Heís my neighbour (Do me a favour!)

     But I wish he didnít have to live next door (Door Ö)
