It’s 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.
It’s not easy being green.
It seems you blend in with
so many other ord’nary things.
And people tend to pass you
over ’cause you’re not standing out
like flashy sparkles in the water
or stars in the sky.
But green’s 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 it’ll do fine,
And I think it’s what I want to be.
