Berlin - Recorded in 1968


Ella Fitzgerald & the Tee Carson trio - Summertime (from Porgy and Bess, by George Gershwin).
The first lady of song in Berlin, 1968.
Beautiful mother singing a lullaby to her baby.

Summertime lyrics
Songwriters: George & Ira Gershwin, Du Bose & Dorothy Heyward

And the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin'
And the cotton is high

Oh, 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 'til that morning
There's a'nothing can harm you
With your daddy and mammy
Standing by
Don't you cry
