Vietnamese song lyrics from a cognitive perspective based on the theory of conceptual metaphors initiated by Lakoff and Johnson 
(1980). The data collected from 181 English and Vietnamese songs (90 and 91 songs respectively) from the 20th century to the 
present consist of 288 metaphorical expressions. The study shows the similarities and differences of conceptual metaphors of 
season in English and Vietnamese songs. The results reveal that there are 6 conceptual metaphors of season when season is 
regarded as concrete entity in English and Vietnamese.
