Summertime

By George Gershwin

[VERSE 1]

Summertime an’ the livin’ is easy.
Fish are jumpin’, an’ the cotton is high.
Your Daddy’s rich, an’ your Ma is good lookin’,
So hush, little baby, don’t you cry.


[VERSE 2]
One of these mornin’s you’re goin’ to rise up singin’,
Then you’ll spread your wings an’ you’ll take the sky.
But till that mornin’ there’s a nothin’ can harm you
With Daddy an’ Mommy standin’ by.
