"Spring Is Here"

"Spring Is Here" was written for a 1942 MGM musical called I Married An Angel, which was based on the 1938 Broadway production by Rodgers and Hart.

This talented pianist demonstrates the melody:

"Spring Is Here"
lyrics by Lorenz Hart, music by Richard Rodgers

Spring is here!
Why doesn’t my heart go dancing ?
Spring is here!
Why isn’t the waltz entrancing?
No desire, no ambition leads me,
Maybe it’s because nobody needs me.

Spring is here!
Why doesn’t the breeze delight me?
Stars appear,
Why doesn’t the night invite me?
Maybe it’s because nobody loves me.
Spring is here I hear

Sinatra recorded his version for the 1958 album Frank Sinatra Sings For Only the Lonely.
