Spring is near, can you hear?
Birds on wing, flowers sing.
Winter's gone, life flows on;
Children rush to see what happened while they were inside,
Breathing in the air, irises in bloom, bees zooming.
Spring is near, life is dear.
I cannot wait to see what this year will bring,
And I'm really glad it's almost spring.
