“I Got the Spring Fever Blues”

Happy Spring!

But in Wisconsin, it actually feels like this:

I’ve been wearing more layers than that! 😉

Last year, I shared my cover of “Welcome Sweet Springtime” with you:

It’s such a great song because it celebrates WINTER BEING OVER! 🙂

Although Tuesday marked the first day of spring, and it’s been super cold, I thought Ella Fitzgerald’s “I Got the Spring Fever Blues” would be the perfect song for this week.

I was searching for different songs about spring, and I was so happy to have come across this gem! Although I had never heard this song before, I knew it was going to be AMAZING because it was a song by ELLA FITZGERALD! ❤

The song was even better than I had anticipated because the pairing of Ella Fitzgerald’s voice with The Chick Web Orchestra is absolutely fantastic! (Check out the NPR article “Ella Fitzgerald’s Early Years Collected In A Chick Webb Box Set” to learn about Ella Fitzgerald and The Chick Web Orchestra.)

Lyrics:

I feel so lazy, can’t do a thing
My mind is hazy just like a smoke ring
I think of nothing but lying in the hay
I got the spring fever blues

The sun is shining right in my room
I feel like I was the man in the moon
I’m riding high on the clouds way above us
I got the spring fever blues

I wish that spring were back again
To satisfy my lazy yen
I miss those days of dreaming
If birds were nestlin’ in the trees
And leaves were swayin’ with the breeze
My heart would keep on beaming, who-o-oh

I hope the south wind blows past my door
And leaves me someone whom I can adore
I think of nothing but love and romance
I’ve got the spring fever blues, I mean
I’ve got the spring fever blues

I wish that spring were back again
To satisfy my lazy yen
I miss those days of dreaming
If birds were nestlin’ in the trees
And leaves were swayin’ with the breeze
My heart would keep on beaming, who-o-oh

I hope the south wind blows past my door
And leaves me someone whom I can adore
I think of nothing but love and romance
I’ve got the spring fever blues, I mean
I’ve got the spring fever blues

The song is so catchy! 😉 Here’s to hoping that it starts to feel like spring soon! ❤
