I love you, Porgy
Don't let him take me
Don't let him handle me
And drive me mad

If you can keep me
I want to stay with you forever
And I'll be glad

I love you, Porgy
Don't let him take me
Don't let him handle me
With his hot hands

If you can keep me
I want to stay with you forever
I like my man

Someday I know he's coming
Back to call me
He's gonna handle me
And hold me so

It's going to be like dying, Porgy
When he calls me
But when he comes, I know
I'll have to go
