Summertime
And the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin'
And the cotton is high

Your daddy's rich
And your mamma's good lookin'
So hush, little baby
Don't you cry

One of these mornings
You're gonna rise up singin'
Then you'll spread your wings
And you'll take to the sky

But until that morning
There ain't nothing can harm you
With daddy and mamma standin' by
