Summertime – Gershwin (1935)

1) Summertime,
when the living is easy.
Fish are jumping
and the cotton is high.
Your daddy’s rich
and your mamma’s good looking.
So hush little baby,
don’t you cry.

2) Because one of these mornings,
you’re gonna rise up singing.
You’re gonna spread out your little wings
and you take to the sky.
Until that morning,
there ain’t nothing to harm you.
With your daddy and mammy oohoo,
standing by.
