The Lyrics

They're topless in Skokie
They're shirtless in Maine
Cause it's so darn hot now
It's scramblin' our brains

They're fryin' in Phoenix-
Eggs on the street
Who needs a skillet
When you've got concrete?

Might as well sizzle
some bacon strips, too
And while we're at it
Let's have a fondue

The ground is a'crackin'
It's turned into dust
It's over one hundred
With humidity and such

The lizards are croakin'
And that's pretty bad
The lawns in my neighborhood
Are lookin' real sad

So come ye young weathermen
Give us a break
How much more torture
Are we gonna take?

This song is a long one
Like it or not
I am just sayin'
It's pretty damn hot
