Lyrics and Chords

[Sesame Street]

[Capo 3]

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

/ Gmaj7 - / F#7 - / Dm6 - / E7 - Am7 / - - D7 / G - - D7 / 

It's not that 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'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

/ Fmaj7 - / Bbmaj7 - G - - - / Em7 - / - A7 Am7 - - D7 /

When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why
But, why wonder, why wonder?
I'm green and it'll do fine
It's beautiful and I think it's what I want to be
