Porgy, I Is Your Woman Now
1935 George Gershwin, Ira Gershwin, DuBose Heyward
... Nina sang the opening lines of another Gershwin song, "Bess, You is My Woman Now." But on this night [Newport 1963] she remade it to suit her purpose. "Porgy, I's your woman now," she sang, teasing out each word, until half-way through, as if jolted by an entirely new thought...
-Nadine Cohodas Princess Noire: The Tumultuous Reign of Nina Simone

From the opera Porgy and Bess (1935), second act, scene 1.

Porgy I's your woman now I is I is
And I ain't never going nowhere
Less me and you share the fun
There's no wrinkle on my brow nohow
Cos I ain't going you hear me saying I ain't going
You hear me saying if you ain't going with you I'm staying

Porgy I's your woman now I'm yours forever
Summertime and eveningtime and wintertime and morningtime
Summertime and eveningtime and wintertime and morningtime
Springtime and autumntime and wintertime and morningtime

Porgy I's your woman now I'm yours forever
From this moment I'm telling you Porgy
I'll make this bow Porgy that I is your woman
Your woman now oh my Porgy
I is your woman now my Porgy now
