Green Day

imagesI like to play tricks on a green day

like pinch my aunt on the shoulder

and put green eggs in my dog’s bowl

I like to sneak around on a green day

like a leprechaun in the bushes

I like to wear hats on a green day

and listen to the band Green Day

while I wear my lucky green socks

On St. Patrick’s Day

I’m going to eat

green beans and play green games

I’ll sing green songs and drink green juice

It will rain down green money and we’ll

sail down a green river and all

be happy green like the Irish

Emerald Green, I adore you
When the wind blows, you shake
When we jump, you land first
I want to sing, “You’re everywhere
around me, making my heart want
to burst!”
You’re on the trees I always climb
You’re on the grass I lie in
You grow on me
You make me smile everywhere I go
I am always thinking about you
You flow down the river, whistling
my song

Oh, emerald green, you are slippery and wet
You tumble like the grass

Oh, emerald green, you whisper secrets in the night
You are like an emerald green window

Oh, emerald green, I can’t sleep without you
You glow in the night

Emerald green, I see you with my eyes closed
I feel you inside my head

You make me think of a twirling acrobat
You are bright and wild

You clap like thunder
You shake, rattle, and roll

Emerald green, I love you so much
You make me laugh, you make me cry.
