Dick Haymes Lyrics

It Might As Well Be Spring Lyrics
It Might As Well Be Spring

Artist: Andy Williams
Words by Oscar Hammerstein II, Music by Richard Rodgers as their only film score

Performed by Louanne Hogan dubbing for Jeanne Crain in the 1945 film "State
Fair", also starring Dana Andrews and Dick Haymes. In the 1962 film re-make,
Anita Gordon dubbed for Pamela Tiffin.
Was a # 5 hit for Haymes in 1945

I'm as restless as a willow in a 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 somewhere else
Walking down a strange new street
Hearing words that I have never heard
From a girl I've yet to meet
BRI'm as busy as a spider spinning daydreams
BRI'm as giddy as a baby on a swing
BRI haven't seen a crocus or a rosebud or a robin on the wing
BRBut I feel so gay in a melancholy way
BRThat it might as well be Spring
BRIt might as well be Spring
