Thanks to the great Barney Kessel for the intro... and to Landesman and Wolf for this very cool tune - as hip as ever.

lyrics

Once I was a sentimental thing,
Threw my heart away each spring;
Now a spring romance hasn’t got a chance,
Promised my first dance to Winter;
All I’ve got to show’s a splinter
For my little fling!

Spring this year has got me feeling
Like a horse that never left the post;
I lie in my room staring up at the ceiling,
Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most.

Morning’s kiss wakes trees and flowers,
And to them I’d like to drink a toast;
I walk in the park just to kill lonely hours,
Spring Can really Hang You Up The Most.

All afternoon those birds twitter twit,
I know the tune, “This is love, this is it!”
Heard it before and I know the score,
And I’ve decided that Spring is a bore!

Love seemed sure around the New Year,
Now it’s April, love is just a ghost;
Spring arrived on time, only what
became of you, dear?

Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most.
Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most.

Doctors wise prescribed a tonic:
Sulfur and molasses was the dose;
Didn’t help a bit, my condition must be chronic,
Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most.

I’m all alone, the party’s over
Old Man Winter was a gracious host;
But when you keep praying for snow to
hide the clover...
Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most.
