May Song (Spring is Coming)

Lyrics

(Melody by Charles L. Minturn, 1914, Lyrics Traditional)

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,
Flowers are waking, too.
Daisies, lilies, daffo-dillies
Now are coming through.

Spring is coming, spring is coming,
All around is fair.
Shimmer, glimmer on the meadow,
Joy is everywhere.
