    His name is Jackson
    He lives in Jamaica
    Every morning he comes down 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 still knows his history, he knows where he comes from
    that is why he believes the ocean can give him 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 walked away, I heard myself sing

    chorus
    The grass is greener on the other side
    til 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 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
