It’s not easy being green…
But green’s the color of spring
And green can be cool and friendly-like
And green can be big like a mountain
Or important like a river
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
I truly believe this is one of the saddest, most perfect and most beautiful songs ever.
have you seen the Big Bird version from the memorial service for Jim Henson? A perfect sad song made even sadder.
Also, the fact that the Muppets have so much heart is, I think, why I love them so much. Rare is the children’s franchise with such sad and serious songs.
