Introduction ; Summertime
A woman is a sometime thing
Gone, gone, gone
My man's gone now
I got plenty o' nuttin'
Bess, you is my woman
It ain't necessarily so
What you want wid Bess?
I loves you, Porgy
There's a boat dat's leavin' soon for New York
Oh, Bess, oh, where's my Bess
Oh, Lawd, I'm on my way.
