being green…

i heard this song on KALX at around 12:30 or so….it’s a sweet song and heck…it’s St. Paddy’s day afterall


Itís not easy being green
sung by – Kermit the Frog

Itís not that easy being green;
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves.
When I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow or gold-
Or something much more colorful like that.

Itís not easy being green.
It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things.
And people tend to pass you over ëcause youíre not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water-
or stars in the sky.

But greenís the color of Spring.
And green can be cool and friendly-like.
And green can be big like an ocean, or important
like a mountain, or tall like a tree.

When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why, but why wonder why?
Wonder, I am green and itíll do fine, itís beautiful!

And I think itís what I want to be.
