Spring, spring, spring. Our winter days are past.
The tulips raise their little heads, the
snow is gone at last.
(For warmer climates replace 'snow' with 'rain' or 'cold'.)
Spring, spring, spring. The buds form on the trees
When Mr. Sun shines down on them they open into leaves.
Spring, spring, spring. The birds are building nests
They sing their songs for us to hear, to see who sings the best.
Spring, spring, spring. Of spring we now shall sing.
So take hands and dance around and give three
cheers for Spring!
