    Default Spring Will Be A Little Late This Year - Frank Loesser

    Frank Loesser wrote the words and music for “Spring Will Be a Little Late This Year” in 1944. A now forgotten crooner Johnnie Johnston made the first recording.

    The song subsequently appeared in the movie Christmas Holiday.

    Bob,

    Thanks for reviving this beauty. I had not used the intro and verse before, but your chart prompted me to include them.

    This is my interpretation:

    Spring Will Be A Little Late This Year-Rev JE - Frank Loesser

    Cheers,
    Jer

    Thanks again Jer, that makes me happy.

    Sometimes spring comes a little late...but Christmas comes a little early...
