Get Ready!

Springtime is coming, coming,
Springtime is coming!
Almost bud upon the branch,
Almost robin comes to dance.
Bare tree, bare tree, get ready!

And ye, bare hill, get set to spill
Long green grasses waving.
All this winter your blank face
Has been too smooth with shaving!
Sweet hill, sweet hill, get ready!

See the children in the swings,
Hear their mothers laughing—
Almost, almost, we can see!
Almost, almost, we can hear!
Oh lips, oh joy, get ready!

Springtime is coming, coming,
Springtime is coming!
