On the Greener Side

(A) Send me a dozen long stemmed roses
I’ll tell you what I will do
I’ll bend them into a crown of thorns
Then (E7) send them right back (A) to you

Your (A)love (E7) love (A)love (E7)
Don’t(A) keep me (E7) sat (A) isfied (E7)
(A) Though I’ve never (E7) been there
I (A) know it’s always (E7) greener
On the greener (A) side

Say you want to give me a run for my money
Here’s something I’m gonna admit
It may sound funny, but Romeo honey
I don’t want none of your…

My love is like a wishing well
Your love is like a clear blue sky
Sometimes it takes a thunder storm
To fill me when I’m dry
