When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

That song, tho.

I heard she had passed. I didn't realize who she was... oh, man.

Her delivery on that song is so good. She sounds like she had that 3-martini lunch but her rhythm is spot on, like it was written for her.

The song is from one of Sondheim's first hits, Company, and she originated the part. The character really is just as cynical and acidic as the song indicates. And yes, she is completely spot-on.

I'm very familiar with the song (and Sondheim), just didn't make the connection. She owns it.
