Summertime

Playing on the iPod is one of the most beautiful songs ever. Gershwin's Summertime, from the opera Porgy & Bess. Sung by the wonderful Ella Fitzgerald.

Summertime and the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin', and cotton is high.
Oh your daddy's rich, and your ma is good lookin'
So hush, little baby, don' yo' cry.

One of these mornin's you're goin' to rise up singin',
Then you'll spread you're wings an you'll take the sky.
But till that mornin, there's a-nothin' can harm you
With Daddy and Mammy standin' by.
