It's not that easy bein' green

Having to spend each day the color of the leaves

When I think it could be nicer bein' 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 standin' out like flashy sparkles on the water

Or stars in the sky

 

But green is 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

But why wonder, why wonder?

It's beautiful

And I think it's what I want to be
