It’s Not that Easy Bein’ Green

It’s not that easy bein’ 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 bein’ green.
It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary 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, it’s beautiful!
And I think it’s what I want to be.

    Deceptively innocent, innocently meaningful. Thanks for sharing, Grace.
