Andrew bird - Bein' green

It's not that easy bein' green
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves
When you could be something so much nicer
Like red or yellow, aquamarine
Or something more colorful like that

It's not easy bein' green
It seems you blend with all kinds of 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

Green's the color of spring
And green can be cool and friendly-like
Green can be big like a mountain,
Important like a river or tall like a tree


Green is all that you can be
It sort of makes you wonder why, why wonder
Why wonder, why wonder I am green
And that'll do just fine besides

Green's the color of spring
Yeah and green is cool and friendly-like
Green can be big like a mountain,
Important like a river or tall like a tree

Green is all that you can be
It sort of makes you wonder why, why wonder
Why wonder, why wonder I am green
And I think it's beautiful
And besides that's all I want to be
