And the song that sticks in your mind ?

Would be for me.. the first line of this song..
Summer time and the living is easy, fish
are jumpin'...... forgetting the rest of the song..

But for those who want to know the rest of the
words written by Ira and George Gershwin and
Du Bose Heyward.... before a lot of us were born.

Summertime and the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high
Your daddy's rich and your ma is good lookin'
So hush, little baby, don't you cry
One of these mornin's, you're gonna rise up singin'
Then you'll spread your wings and you'll take to the sky
But 'til that mornin', there is nothin' can harm you
With Daddy and Mummy, Mummy standing by
Don't you, don't you cry

And can you believe it was sang by all of these singers?
Paul McCartney
Ella Fitzgerald.
Grateful Dead
Janis Joplin

Ella Fitzgerald, I can understand..and of course every
actress who sang in Porgy and Bess
 but Janis Joplin?
Grateful Dead?
Paul McCartney?

Anyway, as I was sitting out on the porch yesterday
morning.. this tune keep coming back in my head..
which is a little nerve wracking when you don't know the
rest of the song.. (now I do)...

What song is in your head at this time of the year..
Maybe George Evans and Ren Shields
In the good old summer time,
In the good old summer time,
Strolling thro' the shady lanes
With your baby mine;
You hold her hand and she holds yours,
And that's a very good sign
That she's your tootsie wootsie
In the good old summer time.

Tootsie Wootsie? and we complain about
the kids of todays songs.. lol...
