Summertime, and the livin' is easy

Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high

Oh! Your Daddy's rich and your Ma is good lookin'

So, hush little baby, don't you cry . . .


One of these mornin's you're gonna rise up singin'

Then you'll spread your wings, and you'll take to the sky

But 'till that mornin' there's a nothin' can harm you,

with Daddy and Mammy standin' by . . .




Music by George Gershwin 

Lyrics by Ira Gershwin and  Du Bose Heyward, 1933


From Porgie & Bess
