    I’m ok with Frank Yanovic as tradition, but how about balancing it with another real classic? Say,for instance:
    Margy, in “State Fair”:
    The things I used to like
    I don’t like anymore.
    I want a lot of other things
    I’ve never had before.
    It’s just like mother says…
    I sit around and mope.
    Pretending I am wonderful.
    And knowing I’m a dope.
    I’m as restless as a willow in a windstorm,
    I’m as jumpy as a puppet on a string.
    I’d say that I had spring fever,
    But I know it isn’t spring.
    I’m starry-eyed and vaguely discontented
    Like a nightingale without a song to sing.
    Oh, why should I have spring fever
    When it isn’t even spring?
    I keep wishing I were somewhere else,
    Walking down a strange new street.
    Hearing words that I have never heard
    From a man I’ve yet to meet.
    I’m as busy as a spider spinning daydreams,
    I’m as giddy as a baby on a swing.
    I haven’t seen a crocus or a rosebud
    Or a robin on the wing.
    But I feel so gay,
    In a melancholy way,
    That it might as well be spring,
    It might as well be spring.

    Thanks Kat! Enjoy the spring!

      J,
      I do love that song and really didn’t think about it for today. Maybe I should use it when Phil predicts more winter as he did today-it works perfectly for that.

      I have it by Astrud, Rosemary Clooney with Harry James and also Sarah Vaughan. I have played the Astrud before as she is a big favorite of mine.

      The only problem is I don’t have spring fever yet-I’m stuck in the winter doldrums!
