“It’s Not Easy Bein’ Green”

“It’s Not Easy Bein’ Green”

Lyrics by Joe Rapposo

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 being’ green.

It seems you blend with so many other ordinary


And people tend to pass you by 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?


I am green and it’ll do fine, it’s beautiful!

And I think it’s what I want to be.
