(performed by Lauren Bacall & Marilyn Cooper - 1981
performed by  Brenda Pressley & Karen Mason - 1991)


I`ll bet your friends are all celebrities.
That`s wonderful!

What`s so wonderful?
You can make a pot roast.
That`s wonderful!

What`s so wonderful?
First you brown an onion.
Is your picture up at sardi`s?
That`s wonderful!

What`s so wonderful?
You can clean an oven.
That`s wonderful!

What`s so wonderful?
First you get the e-z off!

Ah, the grass is always greener
On somebody else`s estate.
Ah, the meat is always leaner
On somebody else`s dinner plate.
But you can sew a button on.

That`s wonderful!
What`s so wonderful?
Bet you go to discos.
That`s wonderful!

What`s so wonderful?
First you take a valium!
I can see you planning picnics.
That`s wonderful!

What`s so wonderful?
Eating at the white house!
That`s wonderful!

What`s so wonderful?
First they pass the jelly beans.

Ah, the grass is always greener
On somebody else`s front lawn.
Ah, somebody else`s wiener
Always has a lot more relish on.

You saved the whales in new foundland.
That`s wonderful!

What`s so wonderful?
You can run a household.
That`s wonderful!

What`s so wonderful?
First you have a breakdown.
You`re always in the magazines.
That`s wonderful!

What`s so wonderful?
You can hold a husband.
That`s wonderful!

What`s so wonderful?
There`s more to life than husbands.
I could use a husband
You can have my husband.
I`ve already had your husband!
Ah, it makes you kind of teary.
Ah, think about it, dearie.
The grass is always greener
In someone else`s yard.
It`s hard!

I`ll bet you always ride in limousines.
That`s wonderful!

What`s so wonderful?
You`ve got time for luncheons.
That`s wonderful!

What`s so wonderful?
First you sell the tupperware.
The public wants your autograph.
That`s wonderful!

What`s so wonderful?
You raised a teenaged daughter.
That`s wonderful!

What`s so wonderful?
First you find her diaphragm.

Ah, the grass is always greener
Where some other tenant pays rent.
Ah, the teeth are always cleaner
In somebody else`s polident.

Do you know who your neighbors are?
That`s wonderul!

What`s so wonderful?
You know rona barrett.
That`s wonderful!

What`s so wonderful?
First you keep your mouth shut.
I bet you squeeze the charmin.
That`s wonderful!

What`s so wonderful?
You can make headline.
That`s wonderful!

What`s so wonderful?
I`d rather have a pot roast.
So go brown an onion.
And have some peace and quiet.
You`ve already had my husband!
Ah, everyone`s a victim
Of this ducky little dictum:
The grass is always greener
In somebody else`s yard.
It`s hard!
