Introduction
Summertime
Oh, nobody knows when de Lawd is goin' to call
Seem like dese bones
Summertime (reprise)
Give him to me
Here come de honey man
Here comes Big Boy!
Oh, little stars, little stars
Jesus, he's killed him!
Where is brother Robbins?
Come on sister, come on brother
A saucer-burying setup, I see
My man's gone now
How de saucer stan' now, my sister?
Oh, the train at the station
Oh, I'm a-goin out to de Blackfish Banks
Mus' be you mens forgot about de picnic
Oh, I got plenty o'nuttin'
Listen there what I tells you?
Mornin', Lawyer
'Lo, Bess, goin' to picnic?
Bess, you is my woman now
Oh, I can't sit down!
What's de matter wid you, sister?
I ain' got no shame
It ain't necessarily so
Shame on all you sinners!
Oh, what you want wid Bess?
Lemme go, hear dat boat
Honey, dat's all de breakfast I got time for
Take yo' hands off me, I say
Oh Doctor Jesus
Oh, dey's so fresh an' fine
Now de time, oh Gawd
I wants to stay here ; I loves you Porgy
Why you been out on dat wharf so long, Clara?
Oh, Doctor Jesus
Oh, de Lawd shake de Heavens
One of dese mornin's
Oh, dere's somebody knockin' at de do'
You is a nice parcel of Christmas
If Gawd want to kill me
A red-headed woman
Jake's boat, in de river
Clara, Clara, don't you be downhearted
You low-lived skunk
Summertime (reprise)
Wait for us over there, Al
Oh Gawd! They goin' make him look on Crown's face!
There's a boat dat's leavin' soon for New York
Good mornin' sistuh! Good mornin' brudder
It's Porgy comin' home!
Oh, Bess, where's my Bess
Bess is gone
Oh, Lawd, I'm on my way.
