How To Play

VERSE 1
EbM7                            D
It's not that easy being green
                            Bbm                      C
Having to spend these days the color of the leaves
                                  Fm      Fm/E                 Bb7
When I think it could be so much nicer being red, yellow or gold
                              EbM7          E
Or something much more colourful like that
 
VERSE 2
                     EbM7             D
I know it's not that easy being green
   Db                                            C
It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things
                      Fm
And people tend to pass you over
 Fm/E                                  Bb7
Cause you're not standing out like flashes sparkles on the water
               EbM7
Or stars in the sky
 
CHORUS
    Db                            Ab
But green is the color of spring
    Eb                                  Dm   Eb
And green can be cool and friendly-like
           Cm                          Cm/B  Cm/Bb
And I know green can be big like an ocean
        F                Fm
Or important like a mountain
                      E7
Or tall like a tree
 
POST CHORUS
EbM7                                 D
Oh and when green is all there is to be
        Db                         C
Well, it could make you wonder why
                        Fm        Fm/E
But why wonder, why wonder I'm green
           Bb7
And it will do fine cause it's beautiful
                        EbM7 E Eb D
I think it's what I wanna be
 
CHORUS
         Db              Fm
You know, green is the color of spring
     Eb
And green can be cool and friendly-like
        Cm                Cm/B    Cm/Bb
Oh, green can be big like in an ocean
F
Or important like a mountain
      Fm          Db7
Or tall like a tree
 
OUTRO
               Gb                        F7
Yeah, being green is all there is to be
        E                       Eb
Well, it could make you wonder why
                   Abm
wonder why wonder I'm green
                                     Db7
And it will do fine cause it's beautiful
                          Gb   Bb Gb
I think it's what I wanna be
