So It’s Spring (Tommy Wolf, Wayne Arnold) – lyric

verse:

When the snow and the sleet are done
And the woolens are put away
Everyone shouts hooray!
It’s spring, hooray!

But I never have figured out
What the hullabaloo’s about
Why do the people shout
Hooray! hooray!

I don’t give a tooralay
If it’s April, March, or May
This is what I’ve got to say

chorus:

1
So it’s gonna be spring, so what?
So it’s spring
Is that good?
When I walk through the park
I just walk through the park
And go home to my own little bed

2
So the bird’s on the wing, so what?
I should care
Let it wing
All that passionate cooing
The pigeons are doing
Don’t matter a smidgen
Unless you’re a pigeon
I’m not, and so what if it’s spring

3
Each bud that is bursting in bloom
Unfolds to the delicate bee
And though such hocus-pocus
May tickle a crocus
It’s kind of revolting to me

4
Gee, so it’s gonna be spring, so what?
So it’s spring
Nitchevo
If you’re only a guy with a gleam in his eye
And with no one exciting for hand-to-hand fighting
It might as well be Halloween
See what I mean!
So it’s spring

(repeat 3)
Each bud that is bursting in bloom
Unfolds to the delicate bee
And though such hocus-pocus
May tickle a crocus
It’s kind of revolting to me

(repeat 4, with variation)
Yes, it’s gonna be spring, so what?
So it’s spring
Nitchevo
If you’re only a guy with a gleam in his eye
And with no one exciting for hand-to-hand fighting
It might as well be Halloween
See what I mean
So it’s spring!
