about

Cover of the George Gerschwin song which I fell in love with upon hearing Louie Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald sing it.

lyrics

Summertime and the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high
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 goin' to rise up singing
Then you'll spread your wings
And you'll take the sky

But till that morning

There's a nothin' can harm you, yeah
With daddy and mammy standin' by

Summertime and the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high
Oh, your daddy's rich and your ma is good lookin'
So hush little baby, yeah don't you cry, don't cry
