Joni Mitchell is great, but I try to think of her lyrics as nonsense (a la Tori Amos[^1]) because they're always "introspective"[^2] . Today's case in point, youtube told me against my will that instead of a bunch of gibberish about astrology, Little Green is a about giving up her newborn daughter for adoption.
[^1]: Jeez, five seconds looking for some nonsense lyrics by her brought up stuff about multiple miscarriages and female genital mutilation.
[^2]: i.e. personal stuff about her life I don't want to hear about when I'm doing the dishes.
