LYRIC

[MARY, spoken]
I don't know anything about the spring. Are you sure it's coming?
[BEN, spoken]
Can't you smell it?
[MARY, spoken]
I smell something nice and fresh and damp
[BEN, spoken]
That's the good, rich earth making ready to grow things

(sung)
Winter's on the wing
Soon a fine spring morn's
Coming clean through the night
Comes the May, I say
Winter's taking flight
Sweeping dark cold air
Out to sea, spring is born
Comes the day, say I

And you'll be here to see it
Stand and breathe it all the day
Stoop and feel it, stop and hear it
Spring, I say

And soon the sun is climbing high
Rising fast, on fire
Glaring down through the gloom
Gone the grey, I say
The sun spells the doom
Of the winter's reign
Ice and chill must retire
Comes the May, say I

And you'll be here to see it
Stand and breathe it all the day
Stoop and feel it, stop and hear it
Spring, I say

I say be gone, ye howling gales
Be off, ye frosty morns
All ye solid streams begin to thaw
Melt, ye waterfalls
Part ye frozen winterwalls
See, see now it's starting

And now the mist is lifting high
Leaving bright blue air
Rolling clear 'cross the moor
Comes the May, I say
The storm'll soon be by
Leaving clear blue sky
Soon the sun will shine
Comes the May, say I

And you'll be here to see it
Oh stand and breathe it all the day
Stoop and feel it, stop
[MARY]
And hear it
[BEN]
Spring

And we'll be here to see it
Stand and breathe it all the day
Stoop and feel it, stop and hear it
Spring, I say
