Summertime and the living is easy
Fish are jumping
And the cotton is high
Oh your daddy is rich
and your ma' is good looking
So hush little baby, don't you cry

One of these mornings
You gonna' rise up singing
You gonna' hoist your way home
take to the skies
But tell that morning nothing will harm you
With dad and mommy they'll be standing by

Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel, like a motherless child

Just a long way, from my home, oh lord
Just A long way, from home

A long way from home
Long way from home

Summertime and the living is easy
Fish are jumping oh
And the cotton is high
Oh your daddy is rich
and your ma' is good looking
So hush little baby, don't you cry

One of these mornings
You gonna' rise up singing
You gonna' hoist your way home
take to the skies
But tell that morning nothing can harm you
With dad and mommy they'll be standing by
