Summertime
by Billie Holiday



Summertime, and the livin' is easy
Fish are jimpin' and the cotton is hgh
Oh, your Daddy's rich
And your Ma is good lookin'
So hush little baby
Don't you cry

One of these mornings
You're gonna rise up singing
Then you'll spread your wings
And you'll take to the sky
But till that mornin'
There's nothing can harm you
With Daddy and Mammy standing by

One of these mornings
You're going to rise up singing
And you'll take to the sky
But till that morning
There's nothing can harm you
With Daddy and Mammy standing by
