Perry Como Sings Hits from Broadway Shows ~ 1956
 
Summertime
 
Summertime, and the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high
Oh! Your Daddy's rich and your Ma is good lookin'
So, hush little baby, don't you cry . . .
 
One of these mornin's you're gonna rise up singin'
Then you'll spread your wings, and you'll take to the sky
But 'till that mornin' there's a nothin' can harm you,
with Daddy and Mammy standin' by . . .
 
< instrumental break > 
 
But 'till that mornin' there's a nothin' can harm you,
with Daddy and Mammy standin' by . . .
 
Standing by . . .
