The record is two minutes for a reply with a clickable link - a tie between Jeri and Pene Azul. Slow Joes' best time is three minutes, and that was long ago.
What was that you asked for, Wyo?

"It's Not Easy Being Green"
(Kermit the Frog)
©1970 Jonico Music, Inc.

It's not that easy being 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 being 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.
