Original lyrics by Ira Gershwin: I want to stay here, but I ain't worthy You are too decent to understand For when I see him, he hypnotize me When he takes hold of me With his hard hand Someday, I know he's coming back To call me He's gonna handle me and hold me so It's gonna be like dying, Porgy Deep inside me But when he calls I have to go When he calls I have to go 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 wanna stay here With you forever And I'll be glad Porgy, I's your woman now I is, I is And I ain't never goin'
