​Bess, You Is My Woman Now

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong and appears on the album Porgy & Bess (1959).

Porgy
Bess, you is my woman now, you is, you is!
An' you mus' laugh an' sing an' dance
For two instead of one.
Want no wrinkles on your brow, no-how.
Because de sorrow of de past is all done done.
Oh, Bess, my Bess,
De real happiness is jus' begun.

BESS
Porgy, I's your woman now, I is, I is!
An' I ain't never goin' nowhere 'less you share the fun.
There's no wrinkle on my brow, no how,
But I ain't goin'! You hear me sayin',
If you ain't goin', with you I'm stayin'.
Porgy, I's your woman now, I's yours forever
Mornin' time an' evenin' time
An' summer time an' winter time.

Porgy
Mornin' time an' evenin' time an' summer time an' winter time,
Bess, you got your man.

BESS
Porgy, I's your woman now, I is, I is!
And I ain't never goin' nowhere
'Less you shares the fun.
There's no wrinkle on my brow, no how
But I ain't goin'! You hear me sayin',
If you ain't goin', with you I'm stayin'.
Porgy, I is your woman now! I's yours forever.
Mornin' time an' evenin' time an' summer time an' winter time

Porgy
Mornin' time an' evenin' time an' summer time an' winter time

BESS
Oh, my Porgy, my man Porgy,
From this minute I'm tellin' you, I keep this vow;
Porgy, I's your woman now.

Porgy
Mmh yes, Oh yes, I's there, woman, now.
