Lyrics[edit]

    If I had time to kill the world I'd try, 
    But I'm busy, killing me
    I don't have time to build a suicide, 
    Because the snowman melts in spring

    The striped girls will not be coming back, 
    In the summer they run from me,
    Me

    I don't have time to even say good-bye, 
    We are dying, as winter leaves
    Spring

    Snow melts in my lawn and I am free, yeah
    Corn cob pipe and a button nose, yeah
    Puddled in the grass two lumps of coal, 
    Snow melts in my lawn and I am...
 
    If I had time to kill the world I'd try, 
    But I'm busy killing what's in me
    I don't have time to even say goodbye, 
    We are dying as winter leaves
    Spring
    
    Snow melts in my lawn and I am free, yeah 
    Corn cob pipe and a button nose, yeah

    Spring, spring, spring, Spring,
    Spring, spring, spring, Spring,
