Spring has sprung,
Not for all, but for some.
How do you know spring has sprung?
I saw a flower, yes just one.

Oh, that may be a bit premature,
You shouldn’t say it if you’re not sure.
Yes but, if you smell the air,
You may notice the sweetness that lingers there.

Oh phooey! You can’t tell by that!
You need more evidence; you need more facts.
I have proof, do you want to see?
Look out the window at the budding tree.

Now if you don’t believe that spring has sprung,
I wipe my hands, and I am done.
Can’t tell you more, you must wait,
I just hope it won’t be too late.
