Wednesday, April 6, 2016 – “I Got Plenty of Nuttin”

The song expresses a cheerful acceptance of poverty as freedom from worldly cares. The singer says he has the most important things in life, “‘Cause de things dat I prize, / Like de stars in de skies / All are free”. Most of all, he’s “got my gal, got my Lord, got my song”.

Name the composer. Name the folk opera. And why am I singing the song today?

  1. George Gershwin
  2. Porgy and Bess
  3. I filed my income tax and have to pay again.

FYI – I am not too cheerful over my poverty, but it could be worse “Could be raining.” YF.
