Summertime is een aria uit de opera Porgy And Bess (1935). Het lied groeide vanaf het einde van de jaren 1930 uit tot een klassieker onder zowel jazz-, blues- als popliefhebbers. Summertime werd geschreven door George Gershwin (muziek) en DuBose Heyward (tekst). De tekst is gedeeltelijk ontleend aan de traditional "All my trials". Het nummer is door vele artiesten op de plaat gezet. In de Top 40 stonden in de loop der tijden - naast deze uitvoering - 3 uitvoeringen: Billy Stewart (1966), Brainbox (1969) en The Shake Spears (1978). Daarnaast stond het nummer nog enkele keren in verschillende uitvoeringen in de Tipparade. The Zombies namen hun versie op in 1964.

Songtekst

SONGTEKST SUMMERTIME

Its summertime, and living is easy
The fish are jumping and the cotton is high
Your daddy's rich and your momma's good looking
Won't you hush pretty baby, don't you cry

One of these mornings, you're gonna wake up singing
Than you're gonna spread you're wings, and take to the sky
But 'till that morning, ain't nothing, nothing gonna harm you
With your mommy and daddy, they're standin' by

Its summertime, and living is easy
The fish are jumping and the cotton is high
Your daddy's rich and your momma's good looking
Won't you hush pretty baby, don't you cry


SONGTEKST SHE'S NOT THERE

Well, no one told me about her
The way she lied
Well, no one told me about her
How many people cried

But, it's too late to say you're sorry
How would I know, why should I care
Please don't bother trying to find her
She's not there!

Well, let me tell you about the way she looked
The way she acted, and the color of her hair
Her voice is soft and cool
Her eyes are clear and bright
But she's not there...

Well, no one told me about her
What could I do
Well, no one told me about her
Though they all knew

Well, it's too late to say you're sorry
How would I know, why should I care
Please don't bother trying to find her
She's not there....

Well, let me tell you about the way she looked
The way she acted, and the color of her hair
Her voice is soft and cool
Her eyes are clear and bright
But she's not there...

[Musical Break]

But, it's too late to say you're sorry
How would I know, why should I care
Please don't bother trying to find her
She's not there...

Well, let me tell you about the way she looked
The way she acted, and the color of her hair
Her voice is soft and cool
Her eyes are clear and bright
But she's not there...


SONGTEKST TELL HER NO

And if she should tell you "come closer"
And if she tempts you with her charms
Tell her no no no no no-no-no-no
No no no no no-no-no-no
No no no no no
Don't hurt me now for her love belongs to me

And if she should tell you "I love you", whoa whoa
And if she tempts you with her charms
Tell her no no no no no-no-no-no
No no no no no-no-no-no
Don't let her love from your arms
Oh oh oh oh
Don't hurt me now for her love belongs to me

I know she's the kind of girl
Who'd throw my love away
But I still love her so
Don't hurt me now, don't hurt me now

And if she tells you "I love you", whoa
Just remember she said that to me
Tell her no no no no no-no-no-no
No no no no no-no-no-no
Don't take her love from my arms
Oh oh oh oh oh
Don't leave me now for her love belongs to me
