THEY SAY IT'S SPRING Bob Haymes / Marty Clarke as rec by Blossom Dearie (vocal & piano) w Ray Brown (bass) Herb Ellis (guitar) & Jo Jones (drums) September 1957 arb Erin McKeown When I was young I lived in a world of dreams, Of moods and myths and illusionary schemes. Though now I'm much more grown up, I fear that I must own up To the fact that I'm in doubt of What the modern cynics shout of. They say it's Spring, This feeling light as a feather; They say this thing, This magic we share together, Came with the weather too! They say it's May That's made me daft as a daisy! It's May they say That gave the whole world this crazy heavenly hazy hue! I'm a lark on the wing, I'm the spark of a firefly's fling, yet to me This must be Something more than a seasonal thing! Could it be Spring, Those bells that I can hear ringing? It may be Spring, But when the robins stop singing You're what I'm clinging to; Though they say it's Spring, it's you! If poets sing That when a heart's sympathetic, It's merely Spring, Then poets' plights are pathetic, Though I'm poetic too! They say it's Spring, For lovers that's where the lure is; That evil thing For which September the cure is! This they are sure is true! Though I know That it's so, That my fancy may turn to Spring, With the right One in sight, One can find a perpetual thing! Did I need Spring To bring the ring that you bought me? Though it was Spring That wondrous day that you caught me! Darling, I thought we knew That it wasn't Spring, 'twas you! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - October 2011)
