Lyrics: I. Gershwin (English) and L. Ranieri (Latin)


Aestate, et vivere est facile
Saltant pisces
Byssum crescit alte
O tata tuus est dives
Tua mamma est formosa
Tum care, sileas, mi
Ne ploraris

Sub lucem quondam
Tu cantans surges
Sic, alas pandes
Et ad caelum ascendes
Ast ante eum diem
Nil est quod noceat tibi
Mamma et tata


And the livin’ is easy
Fish are jumpin’
And the cotton is high
Oh, your daddy’s rich
And your ma is 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 the sky
But ’til that morning
There’s a’nothing can harm you
With daddy and mammy standing by
