My Mixtape: "Bein' Green," by Joe Raposo and Jim Henson


Jeremy Wheat, local comedian and host of Altered Images on bff.fm, brings us a classic from everyone's favorite puppet. It was written in 1970 by Joe Raposo and sang by Jim Henson as Kermit the Frog, then covered by many other musicians over the decades. Listen in to see if the wise words of a frog still ring true today.

When green is all there is to be It could make you wonder why, but why wonder? Why Wonder, I am green and it'll do fine, it's beautiful! And I think it's what I want to be.
