As sung by Alan Bell on "The Definitive Collection"

1. Early one evening as I strolled along,
I heard a girl singing an old country song
To welcome the new days, the coming of spring,
The bleak winter over, new life to begin.

CHORUS: Love is a pleasure; love is a pain.
Love is desire to share yet again
The sweetness of caring, the joy and the tears,
Love everlasting, enduring the years.

2. She sang it so sweetly; she sang it so fine,
I thought of my own life and all that was mine,
For having and holding are better than dreams,
And lucky in love means more than it seems.

3. A time comes for living; a time comes for love,
And spring is a good time to give all you have,
For seasons will come and so quickly roll on,
But spring brings that young girl to sing the old song.

Here is an additional verse which has been sung for several years by someone I know at one of my folk clubs. I finally noted these words but as to the provenance, I don't have any information. If anyone does, please share!

"I left her still singing that beautiful song
I hope she will find her own love before long
To share all the good days, the summers for years
The sweetness of caring, the joys and the tears"
