Janis Joplin - Summertime Lyrics

Summertime, time, time,
Child, the living's easy.
Fish are jumping out
And the cotton, Lord,
Cotton's high, Lord, so high.

Your daddy's rich
And your ma is so good-looking, baby.
She's looking good now,
Hush, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby,
No, no, no, no, don't you cry.
Don't you cry!

One of these mornings
You're gonna rise, rise up singing,
You're gonna spread your wings,
Child, and take, take to the sky,
Lord, the sky.

But until that morning
Honey, n-n-nothing's going to harm you now,
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no,
Don't you cry,

    Is it sacrilege to say she sung it better than Billie?

  10. Diana Soriano

    This song makes me sad, and happy, and horny and every other feeling I can't describe.

    You're gonna spread your wings, child
    And take, take to the sky
    Lord, the sky
    But until that morning
    Honey, n-n-nothing's going to harm ya

    dony40 *Vinyl & Live Music*

    Great, thanks!

  69. Eric Yellowbird

    Reminds me of when my heart was breaking as a youngster and it felt like the end of the world, I didn't know there was a language that could be translated directly to the heart and be understood like it do. The voice the guitar continues to speak. Dark and beautiful , that's life.

  73. davidjustdavid

    Just discovered this beautiful lady after watching a Stephen King short story "you know they got a hell of a band" from his nightmares and dreamscapes series. I was curious as to who she was when he said that the waitress looks just like Janis Joplin. So glad I looked her up. I wasnt born until '82 but I am glad I discovered her music one way or another.

    andre santos

    I Love, Janis!!

  74. Lure Reviews

    Came here to confirm Janis was a hack. All I hear is screeches and pitch singing. Extremely overrated

  75. manuel montero

    Puro sentimiento, me llega hasta los huesos, toca la fibra más profunda, sentimiento puro

  76. Ron Wilson

    *A voice like fingernails on a chalk board. Not missed!*

  77. Laura Acevedo Frendo

    No concibo semejante estrechez mental. Han pasado 50 años hacia delanteeeee? No way, 50 sí, pero hacia atrás. Y depende d kien seas, porque la incontable caterva d chillonas sin ningún arte q salen todos los días con 1er y 2do plato más postre n la cabeza salen n pelotas, literalmente, y qué? Lo q pasa con Janis es q era natural y le sobraba el talento, como a la grandiosa Patti Smith.

  78. Don Jenkins

    it does not get any better then Miss Janis

  88. Robert Arcidiacono

    Its an amazing song the way she sing it like no other she was assum


    A voz rouca e inconfundível da Janis misturada com o solo de guitarra e o baixo honesto Big Brother and the holding Company fazem dessa música um clássico do rock

  90. Jean Michel
