Subject:        green-eyed jealousy

"Green Eyes" is one of the songs on Erykah Badu's new album "Mama's
Gun".  Its first stanza, called first movement (a low-volume, jazzy
mock-historical 30's recording, making the story real old, with the
singer as it were listening to her own former self as a brave and good
girl) goes like this:

My eyes are green
'Cause I eat a lot of vegetables
It don't have nothing to do with your new friend

Great stuff to keep jaundice and Munch's painting far hence.

Werner
