It Might as Well Be Spring / Nina Simone
Iím as restless as a willow in a windstorm,
Iím as jumpy as a puppet on a string,
Iíd say that I had spring fever,
But I know it isnít spring.
Iím as starry eyed and gravely discontented,
Like a nightingale without a song to sing.
Oh, why should I have spring fever,
When it isnít even spring?
I keep wishing I were somewhere else,
Walking down a strange new street,
Hearing words I have never never heard,
From a man Iíve yet to meet.
Iím as busy as a spider spinning daydreams,
Iím as giddy as a baby on a swing,
I havenít seen a crocus or a rosebud,
Or a robin or a bluebird on the wing,
But I feel so gay in a melancholy way,
That it might as well be spring,
It might as well be, might as well be,
It might as well be spring.
