Summer's day song

James Spann used my suggestion for his hot weather song lyrics of
the day in his afternoon forecast discussion at Alabamawx.com.

James wrote...
This afternoon’s heat song is submitted by reader Mike Wilhelm.
Mike writes: “I hope you don’t run out of summer songs before
the heat subsides. How about this one from Sam Cooke in 1957?
Paul McCartney released a really good version in the late 80’s too.”

“It’s summertime and the living is easy
Fish are jumping and the cotton is high
Your daddy’s rich and your mama’s good-looking
Hush, little baby don’t you cry
don’t cry, don’t cry, don’t cryno no no no
don’t cry, don’t cry
One of these mornings you’re gonna rise up singing

you spread your wings and take to the sky
But until that morning there is nothing can harm you
With your daddy and mommy standing by
They are standing by, I know, don’t cry
Summertime, summertime, summertime

and the living is, living is easy”
