Summertime
from the Opera “Porgy and Bess”
Music by George Gershwin
Lyrics by DuBose Heyward and Ira Gershwin

Sum-mer-time / and the li-vin’ is ea-sy /
Fish are jum-pin’ / and the cot-ton is high /
Oh your dad-dy’s rich / and your ma is good loo-kin’ /
So hush lit-tle ba-by / do-o-n’t you-ou cry-y/

One of these mor-nings /
You’re going to ri-i-se up sing-ing /
Then you’ll spread your wings /
And you’ll take to the sky /

But til that mor-ning /
There’s a’no-thing can harm you /
With dad-dy and mam-my / sta-and-ing by-y /
Ah!

Score:

Summertime
