Billie Holiday - "Porgy" lyrics

George and ira gershwin / dubose heyward

I love you, porgy

Dont let him take me

Dont let him handle me

And drive me mad

If you can keep me

I want to stay with you forever

And Ill be glad

I love you, porgy

Dont let him take me

Dont 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 hes coming

Back to call me

Hes gonna handle me

And hold me so

Its going to be like dying, porgy

When he calls me

But when he comes, I know

Ill have to go
