It Might As Well Be Spring

Lyrics:Oscar Hammerstein II
Music:Richard Rodgers

The song was publishe 1945.

The song was an Oscar-winning for Rogers and Hammerstein
as their very first and the only.
It tells that this song was the only original written for the film by them.
As you've known already that the songs they composed had been almost
sung on Broadway stages, they had mattered less about the Oscars.
In "State Fair" (45), Jeanne Crain sings it.
(Dubbed by Louanne Hogan)

State Fair

The things I used to like, I don't like any more,
I want a lot of other things I've never had before,
It's just like my mamma says, I sit around and mourn
Pretending that I am so wonderful and knowing I'm adored

I'm as restless as a willow in a windstorm
I'm as jumpy as 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
O why should I have Spring fever
When it isn't even Spring

I keep wishing I were someone else
Walking down a strange new street
And hearing words that I have never head
From a man I've yet to meet

I'm as busy as spider spinning daydreams
Spinning spinning daydreams
I'm as giddy as a baby on a swing
I haven't seen a crocus or a rosebud, or a robin on the wing
But I feel so gay in a melancholy way
That it might as well be Spring
It might as well be Spring
