A Dream Passes By The Windows

Wikipedia: Summertime (song)
"Summertime" is the name of an aria composed by George Gershwin for the 1935 opera Porgy and Bess. The lyrics are by DuBose Heyward and Ira Gershwin. A popular jazz standard, the song is in the Aeolian mode. Gershwin is said to have based this song on a Ukrainian lullaby, Oi Khodyt Son Kolo Vikon (A Dream Passes By The Windows), which he heard in a New York City performance by Oleksander Koshetz’s Ukrainian National Chorus.

It is widely believed that "Summertime" vies with the Beatles' "Yesterday" as one of the most often covered songs in popular music, with an estimated 2,600 different versions recorded. However, a far greater number of recordings of the former exist: as of 20 September 2007 , an international group of collectors of recordings of Summertime known as "The Summertime Connection," knows of at least 20,415 public performances, of which 14,103 have been recorded. Of those, the group has 8,764 full recordings and about 1,100 samples and incomplete recordings in its collection.

Ой, ходить сон коло вікон.
А дрімота коло плота.
Питається сон дрімоти:
– А де будемо ночувати?
– Де хатинка теплесенька,
Де хатинка малесенька,
Там ми будемо ночувати,
Дитиноньку колихати.
