FINE SPRING MORNING, A
as rec by Blossom Dearie (vocal & piano) w Ray Brown (bass)

This is a fine Spring morning,
For us to share,
Just look what a fine Spring morning can do!
I've got a brand new feelin';
When I think twice
It's awful nice,
I hope everybody's feelin' it too!
Bees are gettin' busier,
Birds are gettin' dizzier,
Little girls and boys are gettin' quizzier!
Songs are gettin' singier,
Butterflies are wingier,
And sure as shootin', Spring is gettin' springier!
So on this fine Spring morning,
My heart's resigned,
Made up my mind
To spend every fine Spring morning with you!
Say, I've seen a lot of mornings;
The sunshine glows,
A rooster crows,
But this is my first Spring morning in love!
So if this young girl's fancy
Gets out of hand,
It's just that this young girl's fancy
Kids are gettin' cosier,
Neighbours gettin' nosier,
Bulls are gettin' more and more bulldozier!
Bums are gettin' bummier,
Chums are gettin' chummier,
And yummy lookin' girls are gettin' yummier!
Some of these fine Spring mornings,
We're gonna be
And spend every fine Spring morning
