In a broken down apartment house
Lay a woman in labor 
She said by the grace of God I'll have this child 
And the help of a neighbor 
At six o'clock the sun was rising 
On upon the world 
At seven forty five
The neighbor smiled and sayed 
You've got a beautiful baby girl

She named her Spring 
Winter's been a long time passin 
She named her Spring 
And though she's never been wed
She held her newborn child and said
Spring, I've waited a long, long time for you

In a broked down apartment house
Lay a woman dying
And by her side a little six year old girl
Who was softly crying
 Momma don't go away 
And leave me all alone  Momma said to the welfare lady
Find my child a good home

I'll miss my Spring 
Winter's been a long time passing 
I'll miss you Spring 
The angels carried her away
The welfare lady knelt to pray
Spring, she'll be a long time gone from you 

In a beautiful church out side of town
 Stands a woman smiling
On her hand is a wedding band 
Of fashionable stylin
All the years in the orphan's home
He shared with you 
And now you hopes and childhood dreams
Have all come true

He loves his Spring 
Winter's been a long time passing 
He loves you Spring 
He promised you today 
He'll never ever go away 
Spring, he's waited a long, long time for you
A long, long time for you
