Facts:
  • When first recorded, the title of this song was only “Green”. It debuted on Sesame Street on March 10, 1970. The finished result is one of the most poignant and profound statements on racial and human differences ever recorded. (MarlinsGirl)
  • Song Lyrics:
    [Spoken: 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
    (MarlinsGirl)
