AND NOW FOR SOME ZING-ZANG ZEBRARINGS TWISTED LYRICS…

 

TIMEless SUMMER-daze

And choosin’ ain’t easy

Millennium Park is jumpin’

And the clubs’ rosters are high

 

Even if you’re not rich,

--Many concerts are free--

Though you or your mamma
--still has to be good lookin’--

So silence all the woes, little jazzling
Don’t you cry of nothing to do

One of these mornings,
--Afternoons, evenings or nights--

You’re bound to experience singing,
--instruments playing, or dancing--
Then you’ll expand your mind
and freely fly through the creative sky


But till that morning,
--Afternoon, evening or night--

There’s a’ nothing can bore you

With zebra-libra’s jazzhope

--Web ebbing by--

Peace and Love Supreme

‘becca

 

STOLEN MOMENTS of:

Artist Lyrics: George Gershwin
Song Lyrics: Summertime
Album Lyrics: S'Wonderful Gershwin Songbook

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

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 till that morning
There's a'nothing can harm you
With daddy and mamma standing by

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

Your daddy's rich
And your mamma's good lookin'
So hush little baby
Don't you cry
