Summertime

Jacob Gershovitz alias George Gershwin b. 26 September 1898 d. 11 July 1937, Ira Gershwin, Dubose Heyward. Original music composition for the Opera "Porgy And Bess" (1935) - Historically the MOST recorded song ever.

Summer - time - time - time
Child, the livin's easy
Fish are jumping now
And the cotton, Lord
Cotton's high - Lord so high.

Your daddy's rich
And your ma is so good-looking, babe
She's looking good now
Hush, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby
No, no, no, no, don't you cry
Don't you cry!

One of these mornings
You're gonna rise - rise up singing
You're gonna spread your wings
Child, and take - take to the sky
Lord, the sky

Until that mornin'
Honey, nothing's going to harm you now,
Na, no, no, no, no, no - na, no - na, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, na
Na, no, na, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no - na, no, no, no, na
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
Don't you cry,
Cry... ¥Ç¥
