Next door neighbour

Mr. Jones, my next door neighbour

I feel I've known you all my life

I haven't seen you for a while now

How's the family? How's that beautiful wife?

I hope your dreams were not forgotten

And you've become downtrodden

.

Get your health together

Get your wealth together

Get yourself together

Jones, you were my next door neighbour

.

Mr. Brown, you're so ambitious

You ran off with an Essex blond

You've broke the bank to keep two women

You're over extended, now it's all gone wrong

Now you're right back where you started

Still, you shouldn't be broken hearted

.

Get your mind together

We can still climb together

A step at a time together

Brown, your world was turned upside down

.

I know it's not the same

And everything changes

But behind front doors people think that they can hide

We win and lose, we laugh and cry

Live and learn, at least we try

Oh, give it a try

.

Ba ba ba, together

Ba ba ba, together

And we can go miles together

All of my next door neighbours

.

Get your style together

Put a smile together

And we'll go miles together

All of my next door neighbours

.

Mr. Smith, another story

I wonder what became of him?

They say he threw the telly through the window

He went bizerk and jacked the whole world in

They say he may have hit rock bottom

Still, he went out with a bang and so he is not forgotten

.

We had our tiffs together

Our rows and our rifts together

But let's learn to forgive together

Smith, you were my next door neighbour

Jones, you were my next door neighbour

Brown, you were my next door neighbour
