My Romance

Summertime (Ballad)

I want to pretend that everything is fine

Even though we don’t have a dime

My hope is unwavering

And I will sing my truth

Every time I look at you

Your destiny is planned my child

I leave you in His hands

 

Summertime, and the livin' is easy

Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high

Well, your daddy is rich and your mama’s good-lookin'

So hush, little baby, don't you cry

 

One of these mornings you oh you are gonna rise up singing

Then you will spread your wings and you are gonna take to the sky

But till that morning, you know, you know, you know that nothin's gonna harmyou

With daddy and mammy standin' by

With Daddy and Your Mammy, standing by….

(Verse Composed by Simone Waddell

Chorus Composed by George Gershwin & DuBose Heyward)
