Poem for Monday, June 9, 2008


by George Gershwin and Dubose Heyward

Summertime an’ the livin’ is easy,

Fish are jumpin’ an the cotton is high.

Oh, yo daddy’s rich, an yo mama’s good-lookin’,

So hush, little lady, don’ you cry.

One of these mornin’s you goin’ to rise up singin’,

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.
