​Summertime

This song is by Sissel and appears on the album Sissel (1986) and on the compilation album De Beste 1986-2006 (2006).

(George Gershwin/Dubose Heyward)

Summertime an' the livin' is easy,
Fish are jumpin' an' the cotton is high.
Oh, yo' daddy's rich,
An' yo' ma is good lookin'!
So hush, little baby, don' - you cry.
One of these mornin's
You gonna rise up singing!
Then you'll spread yo' wings -
An' you'll take the sky.
But till that mornin' there's
A nothin' can harm you.
With Daddy an' Mammy standin' by
