"The First Day of Spring" as written by Paul Jago, Eric Howden, Timothy Mcdonald, Jud Ruhl and Brian Ward....
My friend...
Don't just sit there and ruminate...
With your navel to comtemplate...
It's a beautiful day outside...
Time's passing you by...
Come on out...
Don't just sit there catatonic...
I'm feeling supersonic...
A warm wind is sweeping by...
The sun's full in the sky...
And there's no way of knowing,
No way to know,
Know how long it'll last,
No way of knowing,
No way to know,
Know how long it'll last...
Come on out...
Don't just sit there and decompose...
Go throw on some summer clothes...
I would enjoy your company...
But please hurry...
Cause there's no way of knowing,
No way to know,
Know how long it'll last,
No way of knowing,
No way to know,
Know how long it'll last...yeah...
My friend...
It's time that you begin again...
Time that you begin again...
Time that you begin again...
Time that you begin yeah...
You can't mean it(no way of knowing)
You can't mean it(no way to know)
You can't mean it(know how long it'll last)
You can't mean it(no way of knowing)
You can't mean it(no way to know)
You can't mean it(know how long it'll last)
You can't mean it(no way of knowing)
You can't mean it(no way to know)
You can't mean it(know how long it'll last)
You can't mean it(no way of knowing)
You can't mean it(no way to know)
You can't mean it(know how long it'll last)
You can't mean it(no way of knowing)
You can't mean it(no way to know)
You can't mean it(know how long it'll last)
No no no...

    General Commentim not exactly sure if this song even has a deeper meaning, i think its just about enjoying your time while your alive, the sunshine, girls in haltertops and whatnot, and not sitting inside on the computer writing paragraphs about what you think about songs....SO GET THE HELL OUTSIDE WHILE ITS STILL SUN SHINY!

    General CommentI know the writer of the song may have had different meaning when he wrote this, but everyone may have a different interpretation. To me, this song sounds like telling someone to leave all thoughts and reminders of a past relationship and start over. Spring is often metaphored as a starting over/new period for many people or cleaning out clutter. I guess it's the last 3 lines that give the rest of the song a twist and can think of it as a friend motivating a friend caught up on relationship:

    My friend.
    It's time that you began again
    You can leave it all behind.

    General CommentWe just celebrated the first day of spring and I kicked it off with this song. A very cool oldie with the theme of letting go and moving on. I love the happy sound of it, so relaxing.
