Grass as in the terrestrial ones? No, they won't. If you meant dwarf sagittaria, yes, they do.

And no drug reference, people. This is a banned subject. Thank you.

Like lupid said, go to a sight that sells plants and search for either dwarf sagittaria or sagittaria subulata

sorry but i gotta disagree on this one, i found something that looks virtually identical to what i have in my tank right now, its called Echinodorus Lilaeopsis heres a link,http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/auction/auction.cgi?liveplantsr&1228322073

Why ask a question if you know the answer?

Echinodorus Lilaeopsus isn't as easy to grow as Sagittaria Subulata, and S. Subulata is a ton cheaper. If you're going more for lawn grass instead of monkey grass you might also want to look up E. tenelus. It's another type of microsword.

I've got Echinodorus tenellus. It doesn't grow as lush as lawn grass but it can get pretty lush.
I agree with the Subulata choice. Thats your best bet.

Thanks for all the help guys. Looking into Sagittaria Subulata right now.

There are several choices for a grass look in a tank. Dwarf sag is probably the easiest. But it can get kind of tall. If you have a monster tank that might be fine though. But there are some shorter grass plants like micro sword or dwarf hairgrass.
Try looking around on some of the planted aquarium forum classifieds and you will find something you like.
