"Summertime" as written by Ira Gershwin, George Gershwin and Du Bose Heyward....
Summertime
And the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin'
And the cotton is high
Your daddy's rich
And your mamma's so good-lookin', baby
So hush, my little darling
Don't you cry
One of these mornings
You're gonna wake up singing
You're gonna spread your wings
And take to the sky
But till that morning
Nothing's ever gonna harm you, oh no
With your mama and your daddy standing by
But till that morning
Nothing's ever gonna harm you, oh no
So hush, my little darling
Don't you cry
It's summertime
And the livin' is easy
The fish are jumpin'
Don't you know they're jumpin', baby
And the cotton is high
Your daddy is rich, so rich
And your mamma's so good-lookin', baby
Don't you hush, my little darling
Don't you cry
It's summertime
Summertime
Summertime
Summertime
Don't you cry
Don't you cry, baby
Don't you cry
Don't you cry, baby
Don't you cry
Summertime
Summertime
Don't you cry
