It Might As Well Be Spring (1945)
(m) Richard Rodgers (w) Oscar Hammerstein II (I) Film: State Fair by Louanne Hogan dubbing for Jeanne Crain. Academy Award winner. (P) Dick Haymes. (CR) Rosemary Clooney
I’m as restless as a willow in 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 someone else
Walking down a strange new street
Hearing words that I have never heard
From a man 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.
