[Verse 1]
Down by the docks
The weather was fine
The sailors were drinking American wine

[Pre-Chorus]
And I wished I could go back to spring again

[Verse 2]
Now they're all gone
That's life moving on
Some stayed behind to get drunk on the song

[Pre-Chorus]
And they wish they could go back to spring again

[Chorus]
Oh, such a spring
Oh, such a spring
Oh, such a spring

[Verse 3]
The noise of the town
The salt in the air
It plays all around but I no longer care

[Pre-Chorus]
And I wish I could go back to spring again

[Chorus]
Oh, such a spring
Oh, such a spring
Oh, such a spring

[Bridge]
They try words
And down through the years
It all turns to tears
They don't know
But they try anyway

[Verse 4]
The clouds cleared up
The sun hit the sky
I watched all the folks go to work just to die

[Outro]
And I wished I could go back to spring again
