Spring is coming, spring is coming,
birdies build your nest.
Weave together straw and feather,
doing each your best.
Spring is coming, spring is coming,
flow’rs are coming, too.
Crocus, lilies, daffo-dillies
now are coming through.
Spring is coming, spring is coming
all around is fair.
Shimmer, glimmer on the river,
joy is everywhere.
