It Might As Well be Spring

STACEY KENT IT MIGHT AS WELL BE SPRING LYRICS
(1945) richard rodgers, oscar hammerstein ii

I’m as restless as a willow in a windstorm,
I’m as jumpy as a puppet on a string,
I’d say that I have spring fever,
But I know it isnt spring.

I’m as starry eyed and vaguely discontented,
Like a nightingale without a song to sing.

Oh, why should I have spring fever,
When it isnt even spring?

I keep wishing I were somewhere else,
Walking down a strange new street,
Hearing words I have never never heard,
From a man Ive yet to meet.

I’m as busy as a spider spinning daydreams,
I’m as giddy as a baby on a swing,
I havent seen a crocus or a rosebud,
Or a robin or a bluebird on the wing,
But I feel so gay in a melancholy way,
That it might as well be spring,
It might as well be, might as well be,
It might as well be spring.
