about

Spring Day is an anti-snow, pro-sun pop anthem that kisses New England’s longest winter ever goodbye and welcomes Spring. Well, eventually. Written by Boston-based songwriter Karen K (Kalafatas) and performed by her band Karen K & the Jitterbugs, Spring Day combines Karen’s signature catchy hook with humorous, fun lyrics for listeners of all ages. After the longest - and snowiest - winter in Boston’s history, this power-rockin' 80s anthem will have everyone looking towards blue skies and dancing along.

lyrics

Spring Day

My cousin lives in California
Where it’s always sunny and
She thinks these blizzards and these snow days
Are kinda funny and
I’m tired of wearing puff boots and snow pants
I’m tired of hearing Daddy’s shovel rants
Just want the clouds to melt and show me some sun

I’m lookin for a Spring Day
When the sun comes out
And we can go play
And we scream and shout
Cause the grass is green and the flowers are startin to bloom
Just one Spring Day will do.

The inside games and glitter and art work
We’re glued together now
I don’t think anyone denies we’re
Snowbirds of a feather now
I’m tired of watching movies on the couch
Let’s go convince the ground hog to come out
Forget the shadow, I just wanna see the sun

I just want a Spring Day
Got my flip flops on
And shorts are okay
I got two bare arms
Cause the birds are chirpin and the sky is crystal blue
Just one Spring day will do.

If I have to put this hat on one more time, I think I’ll lose my head
I think I’ll smash every snowman I see, and then I’ll break my sled
The sound of the school bell is music to my ears
Cause if we get one more snow day
We’ll be in school all year!

I’m lookin for a Spring Day
When the sun comes out
And we can go play
And we scream and shout
Cause the grass is green and the flowers are startin to bloom
I want a Spring Day
Got my sunscreen on
And shorts are okay
I got two bare arms
Cause the birds are chirpin and the sky is crystal blue
Just one Spring Day will do.

Lala lalalalala
Lala lalalala
(No more snow)
Lalalalalalala
Lalalalalala

La la la.
