I wants to stay here,
But I ain`t worthy.
You is too decent to understan`.
For when I see him he hypnotize me.
When he take hold of me with his hot hand.
Someday I know he`s coming back to call me.
He`s goin` to handle me an` hold me so.
It`s goin` to be like dyin`, Porgy, deep inside me -
But when he calls, I know I have to go.

If dere warn`t no Crown, Bess, if dere was only jus` you an`
Porgy, what den?

I loves you, Porgy,
Don` let him take me,
Don` let him handle me an` drive me mad.
If you kin keep me,
I wants to stay here wid you forever,
An` I`d be glad.

There, there, Bess, you don` need to be afraid no mo`,
You`s picked up happiness and laid yo` worries down.
You goin` to live easy, you goin` to live high.
You goin` to outshine every woman in dis town.
An` remember, when Crown come that`s my business, Bess!

I loves you, Porgy,
Don` let him take me
Don` let him handle me
With his hot han`
If you kin keep me
I wants to stay here wid you forever.
I got my man.

What you think I is, anyway,
To let dat dirty houn` dog steal my woman?
If you wants to stay wid Porgy, you goin` stay.
You got a home now, Honey, an` you got love.
So no mo` cryin`, can`t you understan`?
You goin` to go about yo` business, singin` `cause
You got Porgy, you got a man.
