The Hazy Days of Summer, Summertime, And the - -


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



Words from, Summertime", an aria composed by George Gershwin for the 1935 opera Porgy and Bess. The lyrics are by DuBose Heyward, author of the novel Porgy on which the opera was based.  All lyrics can be found here.  One of my favorite songs, it sings on and on in my mind and heart.
