The Lyrics

The weather here gives you
The sensation of burning,
Like your body's on fire.

I hope for cold, like 1-0-3;
I'm in hell meteorologically.

We got a heat wave, days ago did start,
I can't keep from frying. . .
Hotter then lit fart.

The weather is causing flames,
Engulfing forests, plains.
At least 1-10
Each day, and there's no rain.
This damn high pressure's got a hold on me,
I am melting climatologically.

We got a heat wave, days ago did start,
I can't keep from frying. . .
When will it depart?

This weather will singe you
If your sunblock you're spurning--
Body will be on fire.

Been going on for days,
Can't see skies of blue,
Just a smoggy haze.

We got a heat wave, days ago did start,
I feel like I'm dying,
It's searing me apart.

You too, JAB? Here in London we had 8 straight days over 90 (and we're talking London here) and last Thursday we hit the magic 100. Weatherpersons predict that we'll break the record for hottest day ever before the end of August. ARMAGEDDON IS COMING! Oh...btw, great parody. 555

I didn't know you lived in Dallas. Twelve days at 100 or above, but this week it's only in the upper 90's with humidity. Excellent and highly descriptive work.
