Enjoy the Spring...with a yodel!

As we are about to turn the clocks forward tonight, this very Springy yodel is called Glück Ha! As I've been to Wattwil a few times, I know these two wonderful ladies and this is their own version:

Yes, it is all about celebrating Spring!


Very roughly: "What is the greatest happiness on Earth? The colour of Spring that awakes, listening to a little bird singing, looking at a fruit growing like a jewel ,


Through which words can happiness live? Of clarity and jolliness will you laugh? Rather calm and soothing you will find it, you will lose yourself in happiness.


A small happiness can change your life, feel your heat beating full of joy, through your laughter, your most precious of goods, you are wealthy through the small things that matter."

Re: Enjoy the Spring...with a yodel!

Well, it seemed like a good idea...and now it's about to chuck down with rain! Is it because nobody on EF bothered to give it a try?

I even thanked it :-)))

Warning: it's one of those songs that is pretty difficult to get out of your mind (in a good way) for the rest of the day, at least.
