Summertime and the living is easy
Fish are jumping and the cotton is high
Your dad is rich and your mom's good looking
So hush little baby baby don't you cry

And you'll take to the sky
But till that morning
There ain't nothing can harm you
With daddy and mommy mommy standing by
So hush little baby baby don?t you cry
