First it was Valentine's Day. Pink roses. Then the birds began to sing. I was dancing in the kitchen. The sun was shining on the rain and the rain was falling on the sunshine. Fragrance: Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet. And then there was Fats Waller and a different kind of spring cleaning. [click here to listen on Spotify]:

Spring Cleaning

I’ll polish the leaves, make them green again;
Shake out the trees, change the scene again;
Spring cleaning gettin’ ready for love.

I’ll sweep out the nook down in lover’s lane;
Turn on the brook, make it run again;
Spring cleaning getting ready for love.

I’ll dust those wintry bowers,
Wash them out with April showers,
Cover them with fragrant flowers,
Shine up the silvery moon.

’Cause soon you and I have a rendezvous
Under the sky, like we used to do;
Spring cleaning getting ready for love
— Fats Waller
