Spring came far too early this year:
May flowers blooming in February
Should I be sad for the month
Or glad for the sky?
The birds don’t know which way to sing
And, my friend
Neither do I

Two days ago, a girl I truly thought I loved
Suddenly didn’t seem to matter at all
Should I sing sad farewell
To things I’m really glad I’ve left behind?
The birds don’t know which way to sing
And, my friend
Neither do I

In another day, heavy snow will lie upon the ground
And buds prematurely bloomed shall fail;
And every creature living now
Then will surely die…
The birds don’t know which way to sing
And, my friend
Neither do I

The birds don’t know if it’s time yet to fly;
They don’t know which way to go
And, my friend
Neither do I
