It’s not easy being green
We don’t get enough respect
We provide a fuel that’s clean,
We little cells can grow real fast
All we need is good sunlight.
But here’s a fact some can’t get past:
We’re green – it don’t seem right.
And yet we can produce the oil
To fuel our country’s trucks and cars
The environment we won’t despoil
No oil spills or yucky tars.
While growing we fix CO2
And generate O2 as well
All of this is good for you
And our atmospheric shell.
But it’s not easy being green
The GOP deplores us
But this was not to be foreseen
‘Cause they were once all for us.
