Song Lyric Sunday: Seasons – ‘Summertime’

A ‘seasons’ theme from Jim for Song Lyric Sunday this week so, as the weather seems to be warming up (and the grass is certainly growing), I’ve gone for summer.

From George Gershwin’s ‘Porgy and Bess’, but performed by Janis Joplin: accept no substitute.

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 going to rise up singing
Then you’ll spread your wings
And you’ll take to the sky
But till that morning
There’s a’nothing can harm you
With daddy and mamma standing by
Songwriters: Du Bose Heyward / George Gershwin / Ira Gershwin

  1. When I clicked on the link, I thought I would hear Will Smith’s “Summertime”. But, Janis Joplin is just as good too!
