The Other Side Lyrics

His name is Jackson
He lives in Jamaïca
Every morning he comes dowm to the docks To watch the ships come and go
He's been here too long
Mental slavery, has not touched him one bit
He stilll know his history
He knows where he come from
That is why he believes the ocean
Can give him some answers
About the very very far home
That he's never been to all his life
He says…
I wish I was home, I wish I was in Africa(x2)
I have seen his world, I've seen the other world
I have nothing to say
I put my coat on my shoulders
As I walk away, I heard myself sing

[Chorus]
The grass is greener on the other side Till you get there, and see it for yourself (x3)

His name is Themba
He lives in Soweto
Every morning he goes to the airport
To watch the planes Come and go
He has changed his african name
To a western one
'Cause he doesn't know how it hurts
To have a name you can't be proud of
He hopes that one day (one day)
One of these birds of the sky
Can take him away
To a very very far land
Running away from the very roots
That so many black people in the world
Are wanting to come back
A place they call home
They wish they were home They wish they were in Africa(x2)
I live in his world, I've seen the other world
I got nothing to say I put my coat on my shoulders
As I walked away I heard myself sing
[Chorus]till end
