(NANKI-POO:)

The flowers that bloom in the spring,
Tra la,
Breathe promise of merry sunshine. 
As we merrily dance and we sing,
Tra la,
We welcome the hope that they bring,
Tra la,
Of a summer of roses and wine,
Of a summer of roses and wine.
And that's what we mean when we say that a thing 
Is welcome as flowers that bloom in the spring.

Tra la la la la, 
Tra la la la la, 
The flowers that bloom in the spring.

Tra la la la la, 
Tra la la la la, 
Tra la la la la la! 

(KO-KO:)

The flowers that bloom in the spring,
Tra la, 
Have nothing to do with the case. 
I've got to take under my wing,
Tra la,
A most unattractive old thing,
Tra la, 
With a caricature of a face, 
With a caricature of a face; 
And that's what I mean when I say, or I sing,
"Oh, bother the flowers that bloom in the spring."

Tra la la la la, 
Tra la la la la, 
Oh bother the flowers of spring.

Tra la la la la, 
Tra la la la la, 
Tra la la la la la!
