Bein' Green (Van Morrison)

It's not 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 standing 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
