Green Thing

A local bar had a scrolling marquee sign that said "It ain't a black thing. It ain't a white thing. It's a green thing. Don't ask for credit." Pretty much sums it up.
It ain't about black depression
It ain't about sunny hues
It ain't about black or white or red
It ain't about singing the blues
It's a green thing

It ain't about purple passion
It ain't about jealous rage
It ain't about love, or even hate
Or standing here on the stage
It's a green thing

Don't bother me with your theories
Don't trouble me with your facts
I'm just trying to pay my bills
Before they come and take it all back
It's a green thing
