Just a color can spark a song.

Edie Brickell & New Bohemians
"Green"


We like to spy on the neighbors.
They look so happy together.
Funny the power of strangers.
Sometimes I wonder if they got it better.
Green. Have you seen green?
Check out the view from the rooftop.
They've got a horse and a big trampoline.
Running and jumping till they drop.
Down on the ground and they're rolling around in... green.
Have you seen green?
Have you seen green grass?
So green... grass.
So green.
I'd like to be like that.
I'd like to be like that.
I'd like to be moving on a lawn... so green.
I want to laugh the way they laugh.
See all my blues get back up in the sky.
If only we had what they had.
We'd never worry and we'd never cry for... green.
Have you seen green?
Have you seen grass?
So green... grass.
So green.
I'd like to be like that.
I'd like to be like that.
I'd like to be moving on a lawn... so green.

Green is, afterall, my favorite color. Thanks for the lyrics!

He is a tiny guy! Wonder how many of his siblings he ate?

You're welcome. She sings it like a song from a dream where you're aware it is playing, but it doesn't take over. She's great.

I am a fan of Edie Brickell and have been for a long time. She has an interesting voice and I like the lyrics to her songs.
