I am trying to replace a text '../../Something' with '$Something' in all .txt files in current directory.Let me know where I am going wrong?

find . -name "*.txt" | xargs sed -i "s/..\/..\/Something/\'\$Something'/g"

Error - Variable name must contain alphanumeric character

I also tried with but doesn't work-

find . -name "*.txt" | xargs sed -i "s/..\/..\/Something/\\$Something/g"

Any suggestions for correct command?
