Me and My Green Hair

Will someone say what's so extraordinare,
About my green hair.
Please explain why you stare,
Have you never seen a head of hair?

It's not like dollars...they aren't green,
And no calls them obscene.
Do me a favor and be half of half so mean
at me and my green hair.

Now everyone is acting unfair.
It's hairy discrimination.
Well at least I'm brave enough to dare,
At least kind enough to share,
Color with a black and white nation.

Since when do we get to be unkind?
Since when does color judge the mind?
Does no one notice we're in changing times?
Me and my green hair.

Does no one notice we're in changing times?
Me and My Green Hair.
