Giant the Musical - Did Spring Come to Texas? Lyrics

I've waited out the drought,
Waited out the long winter,
Waited out the rain,
Waited the blue northern,
Waited for the brush to grow so thick,
That a snake's gotta climb out to see.
Waited for the season to finally stick.
Tell me boys, did it stick?
Tell me boys that it's just gotta be.

Did spring come to Texas?
Are the birds going loco?
Did spring come to Texas?
Did the mesquite and the laurel and the wild cherry and the guajillo
Burst up right after the rains
And powder the Prairie grass white?
Did spring come to Texas?

I ask you.

(PINKY): Shit right!

I've waited plenty times.
Waited for each Christmas mornin',
Waited for my first gun,
Waited for my first pony,
Waited for the woman I'd make my wife,
Knowing I'd find her somehow,
Waited for that woman all my life.
Tell me boys, how's it work
That I still gotta wait for her now?
Did spring come to Texas?
Am I just going loco?
My girl's come to Texas!
And the mesquite and the laurel and the wild cherry and the guajillo
Seem to have blossomed for her,
And I gotta swallow my pride.

I've waited for the greenin',
For the round-up,
For the ropin',
For the brandin',
For the ranchers,
And the Cowboys to ride.

Spring came to Texas,
And I'm still waiting for my bride!
