It's Not Easy Being Green

“People tend to pass you over, cause you’re not standing out / Like flashy sparkles in the water, or stars in the sky.”

Despite its melancholy opening, "It’s not Easy Being Green" is meant to be redemptive. "Green can be big like an ocean, or important like a mountain," Kermit sings at the song’s close, "and I think it’s what I want to be."

From Sesame Street, 1970
