    Lyrics

    Born with the moon in Cancer
    Choose her a name she'll answer too
    Call her green and the winters can not fade her
    Call her green for the children who have made her
    Little, green, be a gypsy dancer

    He went to California
    Hearing that everything's warmer there
    So you write him a letter, say, "her eyes are blue"
    He sends you a poem and she's lost to you
    Little, green, he's a non-comformer

    Just a little green
    Like the color when the spring is born
    There'll be crocuses to bring to school tomorrow
    Just a little green
    Like the night's when the Northern lights perform
    There'll be icicles and birthday clothes
    And sometimes there'll be sorrow

    Child with a child pretending
    Weary of lies you're sending home
    So you sign all the papers in the family name
    You're sad and you're sorry but you're not ashamed
    Little green, have a happy ending

    Just a little green
    Like the color when the spring is born
    There'll be crocuses to bring to school tomorrow
    Just a little green
    Like the night's when the Northern lights perform
    There'll be icicles and birthday clothes
    And sometimes there'll be sorrow
