Looking for info on a hard-to-hear lyric in the LH&R "Summertime" -

Towards the end of the song, Hendricks sings the following:

"In summertime,
Livin' mighty easy to do.
The fish are jumpin', yes indeed,
The fish are jumpin', and the cotton's high.
Your daddy's rich,
And your momma ************
Hush my baby, don't you cry.
Hush my little baby, don't you cry."

Any idea what comes after "momma?" Lambert and Ross are singing "Momma's lookin' sweet and fine," but it doesn't sound like Hendricks is singing anything like that at all. (it's 3 syllables that are missing."

Any help would be appreciated!
