Subject: Lyr Add: MAGGIE WENT GREEN (MacColl/Seeger?)
As sung by Peggy Seeger & —? on "Naming of Names" (1990)

Maggie went green, green, green,
But that was what she had to do.
Maggie went green, green, green.
Saatchi & Saatchi told her to.
Built a wind machine on every hill and dale,
Built up stock for a future sale.
Maggie went green.
It's the way the wind blew.

If Maggie is green, green, green,
It's the green of the slime on the stagnant pool.
To learn the meaning of green,
She'd have to go back to school
And learn that green is a natural hue.
It'll mix with the red if the red is true.
Maggie's not green; she's a royal navy blue,
And she'll tread on you
In her blue-suede shoes.
