Lyrics

Good fences make good neighbors
My neighbor says to me
He won’t let go his father’s word - it binds him like a woven cord
Why do they make good neighbors?

Before I built a wall, I’d ask to know
Just who it is I’m keeping in or keeping gone
Just the same, we meet again
Inspect the stones and hold the line
Shore up defenses ‘cause you never know And keep the wall between us as we go Keep the wall between us as we go
Good fences make good neighbors
My neighbor says to me
He fashions his suspicions into a mighty shield He can’t let go of what he finds so real
But as before, we meet again
Inspect the stones and hold the line
Shore up defenses ‘cause you never know And keep the wall between us as we go Keep the wall between us as we go
