porgy lyrics – billie holiday

george and ira gershwin / dubose heyward

i love you, porgy
don’t let him take me
don’t let him handle me
and drive me mad

if you can keep me
i want to stay with you forever
and i’ll be glad

i love you, porgy
don’t let him take me
don’t let him handle me
with his hot hands

if you can keep me
i want to stay with you forever
i like my man

someday i know he’s coming
back to call me
he’s gonna handle me
and hold me so

it’s going to be like dying, porgy
when he calls me
but when he comes, i know
i’ll have to go
