Summertime, and the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high
Your daddy's rich and your ma is good-lookin'
So hush little baby, don't you cry

One of these mornings you're gonna rise up a-singing
You're gonna spread your wings and away you'll fly, oh
But 'till that morning, nothin' will harm you
With daddy and mommy standin' by

Summertime, and the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high
Your daddy's rich and your ma, your ma is good-lookin'
So hush little baby, don't you cry

Summertime, summertime, summertime, summertime
Summertime, ooh-ooh
