    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 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's anothin' can harm you
    With daddy and mammy standin' by

    Oh, Summertime 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
    Cry, cry

    Yeah, I know. "High cotton" is certainly a southern phrase, although "cutting in high cotton" is not.

    Yeah, I've NEVER heard that phrase.
