Spring is sprung.
The grass is riz.
I wonder where the birdies is?
The bird is on the wing.
Now isn’t that absurd?
I always thought the wing was on the bird!
Spring has sprung, the buds all break
Spring has sprung and nature wakes
Spring has sprung, winter’s gone
Now we sing our happy song
Tra-la, la-la, la-la, lay
Sweep the old dead leaves away

Manufactured items mainly comprise household contents, clothing and footwear, motor vehicles and recreational goods, and currently account for almost 20 per cent of the total CPI (Table 2 and Graph 5). On average, manufactured goods prices have been broadly unchanged since the early 1990s and prices of several items have actually fallen in nominal terms. This reflects several factors, including the shift to large-scale, low-cost production of many of these items in the developing world. The price index for the clothing and footwear sub-category, for example, has remained broadly unchanged over the past decade and a half, with outerwear and footwear prices falling over the period. Advances in technology have been an important driver of lower prices for some manufactured items such as audio, visual and computing (AVC) equipment and media with the price index for these items having fallen by 54 per cent since March 1993. Similarly, the price index for motor vehicles has fallen by 12 per cent over this period. These falls do not represent the change in actual amounts spent on these items; rather, they represent estimates of the pure price change, after the ABS adjusts observed price changes for the significant improvement in product quality. Tariff reductions for clothing and footwear and motor vehicle imports have played a role in keeping their retail price low. Fluctuations in the exchange rate have a noticeable effect on manufactured goods prices in the short run, though overall exchange rate movements have played a limited role in price trends over the past decade and a half.
