Summertime

Composición: George Gershwin
Letra: Heyward Du Bose, Ira Gershwin y Dorothy Heyward
Interpretación: Mahalia Jackson

Summertime
and the livin' is easy,
fish are jumpin'
and the cotton is high.

Your daddy's rich
and your mamma's good lookin'
so hush little baby,
don't you cry.

One of these mornings
you're going to rise up singing,
then you'll spread your wings
and you'll take to the sky.

But till that morning,
there's a'nothing can harm you
with daddy and mamma standing by.



………………………….
Compuesta como aria para la ópera Porgy and Bess, esta canción es uno de los gospels más famosos y grabados de todos los tiempos.
