Arranged By:  Axel Stordahl
From the Film:  It Happens Every Spring  (1949)
Label:  Columbia Records
Recorded:  April 10, 1949
I happens every spring, the world is young again
Where children on an up-sa-daisy swing,
A carousel with horses freshly painted,
The oompapa that says let's get acquainted.
What is that cheer I heard, a fellow stealing third,
Your neighbor's boy became a home-run king.
Your dad rolls up his sleeves to clean the attic.
Your sixteen year old sister goes dramatic.
It happens, yes it happens every spring.
The tears that go with sulphur and molasses,
The outstretched necks when the ice cream wagon passes.
A rippling stream sounds like a rippling heart,
As Mother Nature proudly spreads her new green carpet.
Be patient, lonely one, your love will come along,
Your autumn heart will find the songs that sing.
Then raindrops will be dancing to the tune of it,
The carefree gay and April, May and June of it,
And remember it never rains but what it pours,
And maybe raindrops will be whispering, whispering, it's yours.
Be patient, lonely one, your love will come along,
It happens, it always happens every spring.
