4/4/2003 alternate lyrics

Well, well, well
If it isn't another
Shiny, glorious, sunny... day

And all the happy people
Walking, walking in their doors
Through their doors, revolving
Up their elevators, down the shaft
Off they go
Makin' it, makin' it, oh it's a good life
And then, whoopee
We're all gonna die in the end
And they celebrate
And they look at me like I'm a dog
Cause I'm sittin' by a dumpster
Not doin' a damn thing

All I'm doin' is growing a beard
I've been workin' on it for about a year now
And it's a little stinky, but
That's because it's my beard

Sure, once I... was under the impression
That I... was gonna make an effort
So that I might become somebody that
Someone might become impressed by
Then I found my certain someone
And she was oh, so fine
But in my infinite wisdom
I managed to screw that up too

So now here I am, and I wonder why
I wonder why, I wonder...
It's not easy being green
There's so many colors I'd rather be
It's not easy bein' me

Hello, how are you? Yea, good day to you too
If I sing a song, will you give me a quarter?
Thank you so much, I don't even need to sing
God bless you, have a wonderful day, walk safely
I'll just sink back here to my dumpster
Oh, chicken. In a garbage can. I'll eat it, it's delicious
Still warm, still warm, still warm
It's not easy being green
There's so many colors I'd rather be
Dancing Nancies
main lyrics
Well, could I have been a parking lot attendant?
could I have been a millionaire in Bel Air?
could I have been lost somewhere in Paris?
could I have been your little brother?
could I have been anyone other than me?
could I have been, oh, anyone other than me?
could I have been anyone other than me?
could I have been anyone?

He stands, touch his hair, his shoes untied
tongue gaping, stare
could I have been a magnet for money?
could I have been anyone other than me?

Twenty-three and so tired of life
such a shame to throw it all away
the images grow darker still
could I have been anyone other than me?

And then I look up at the sky, my mouth is open wide
lick and taste, what's the use in worrying?
what's the use in hurrying?
turn, turn, we almost become dizzy

I am who I am, who I am
well, who am I?
requesting some enlightenment
could I have been anyone other than me?

And then I'll sing and dance, I'll play for you tonight
the thrill of it all
dark clouds may hang on me sometimes
but I'll work it out

And then I look up at the sky, my mouth is open wide
lick and taste, what's the use in worrying?
what's the use in hurrying?
turn, turn, we almost become dizzy

Falling out of a world of lies
could I have been a dancing nancy
a dancing nancy
could I have been anyone other than me?

And then I'll sing and dance, la la la
hey la la la, hey la la la
sing and dance, la la la
hey la la la, hey la la la
sing and dance, I'll play for you tonight
the thrill of it all
dark clouds may hang on me sometimes
but I'll work it out

And then I look up at the sky, my mouth is open wide
lick and taste, what's the use in worrying?
what's the use in hurrying?
turn, turn, we almost become dizzy
