“It Might as Well Be Spring” by Wally Krauss

“It Might as Well Be Spring” by Wally Krauss

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 had Spring fever
But I know it isn’t Spring
I am starry-eyed and vaguely discontented
Like a nightingale without a song to sing
Oh, why should I have Spring fever
When it isn’t even Spring?
I keep wishing I were somewhere else
Walking down a strange new street
Hearing words that I have never heard
From a girl I’ve yet to meet.
I’m as busy as a spider spinning daydreams
I’m as giddy as a baby on a swing
I haven’t seen a crocus or a rosebud or a robin on the wing
But I feel so gay in a melancholy way
That it might as well be Spring.
It might as well be Spring./////////
Oscar Hammerstein II and Richard Rodgers wrote this
song for the 1945 film, State Fair. It won the Academy Award for Best Original Song that year. Dick Haymes and Frank Sinatra had notable recordings. All Wally Krauss videos were recorded after his 88th birthday. No copyright infringement intended.
