Porgy
I ain' axin' yo' opinion.
Oh, bess, oh where's my bess,
Won't somebody tell me where?
I ain' care what she say,
I ain' care what she done,
Won't somebody tell me where's my bess?
Bess, oh, lawd,

My bess! i want her now,
Widout her i can't go on.
I counted de days dat i was gone
Till i got home to see her face.
Won't somebody tell me where's my bess?
I want her so, my gal, my bess,
Where is she?
Oh gawd, in yo' big heav'n
Please show me where i mus' go,
Oh give me de strength, show me de way!
Tell me de truth, where is she, where is my gal,
Where is my bess!
