Summertime

(DuBose Heyward, George Gershwin)

Summertime, time, time,
Child, the living's easy.
Fish are jumping out
And the cotton, Lord,
Cotton's high, Lord, so high.

Your daddy's rich
And your ma is so good-looking, baby.
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 morning
Honey, n-n-nothing's going to harm you now,
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no,
Don't you cry,
Cry.

    Summertime,
    Child, you're living easy.
    Fish are, fish are jumping out
    And the cotton, Lord, cotton's high, Lord, so high.

    Your daddy's rich
    And your ma, honey I think she's a mighty good-looking babe.
    I think she's looking pretty fine to me now.
    Hush, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby,
    No, no, no, no, no, don't you cry.
    Don't you cry!!!

    One of these mornings
    Child, you'll rise up singing,
    An' since you gotta go, honey, spread your wings,
    You can take, take the sky,
    Lord, the sky.

    Until that morning,
    Honey, n-n-no, nothing's gonna harm you babe.
    I said, honey, no one's ever gonna let you down,
    They wouldn't do it.
    Hush, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby,
    No, no, no, no, no, don't you cry.
    No!
    Cry.
