Louis Armstrong – Summertime lyrics

Summertime.... And the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin'... And the cotton is high
Yo' daddy's rich... And yo' mama's good-lookin'
So hush little baby...... Don't you cry

One of these mornin's.. You gonna rise up singin'
You gonna spread your little wings... And you'll take to the sky
But 'till that mornin'... There ain't nothin' gonna harm you
With yo mama and daddy... Standin' bye


Now it's summertime.... And the livin' is easy
Them fish are jumpin'... And the cotton's 'bout waist high
Yo' daddy's rich... And, ya know yo' mama's good-lookin'
Now hush little baby...... Don't.... You cry


Ah said it's summertime
