Grasshopper, living on a cliff
Don't jump too far
You could have a long long way to climb
Your life could be much safer if
You chose to live in a field, more like mine

Grasshopper (oo-oo)...

Grasshopper, living on a cliff
Don't jump too far
Could have a long long way to climb
Grasshopper, just imagine if
You had chosen a less risky life, more like mine

Grasshopper, as I hop here in my grass
My life is full of silly problems, and I worry without cause
I wonder what might have come to pass
If I had chosen a more simple life, more like yours

Grasshopper, living on a cliff (oo-oo)
Grasshopper (oo-oo), imagine if...
