Sesame Street – Bein' Green lyrics

[Greetings! Kermit the Frog here, and today I'd like to tell you a little bit about the color green. Do you know what's green? [cue music] Well I am for one thing. You see, frogs are green, and I'm a frog. And that means I'm green, you see?]
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
