The Lyrics

100 degrees... of separation... from my senses...
(instrumental opening)

Day after day, I'm unenthused.
At the rate that we go, I'll be hoping rain.
No air-conditioning, blew a fuse.
And I'm feeling the strain.
Ain't it a shame?

Oy.
Living in heat, boys, it grills my soul.
I wanna get off of feeling like hot coal.
I'll melt away.
Living in heat, boys, it grills my soul.
I wanna get off of feeling like hot coal.
I'll melt away.

Beginning to think that it's basting time.
Don't sit on no leather, it feels like glue.
The world outside's hot like coal mine.
And I'm spouting some drool.
And that just ain't cool.

Oy.
Living in heat, boys, it grills my soul.
I wanna get off of feeling like hot coal.
I'll melt away.
Living in heat, boys, it grills my soul.
I wanna get off of feeling like hot coal.
I'll melt away.

It's now one hundred three.
You know just two things now can move me.
The A.C. kicked in, blew.
The Dunkin' Coolatta can soothe me.

Thanks for the joy that you've given me.
I want you to know I believe in your drink.
The milk, chocolate, and ice coffee.
Now the power is on.
The A.C. is strong!

Ho!
Get rid of heat, boys, that thrills my soul!
I wanna get cool, that's a lovely goal!
Won't melt away!

Get rid of heat, boys, that thrills my soul!
I wanna get cool, that's a lovely goal!
Won't melt away!

Hohhhh, whoaaaa!
Get rid of heat, boys, that thrills my soul!
I wanna get cool, that's a lovely goal!
Won't melt away!

Yeah, yeah, yeah!
Get rid of heat, boys, that thrills my soul!
I wanna get cool, that's a lovely goal!
Won't melt away!

Now, now, now, now!
Woncha...
Woncha cool me!
Aw, cool me!
Yeah!

(instrumental fadeout)

I can sympathize about the heat...it's even hot in Wyoming these days...and I never get used to it. Bleah. And, while I'm not a coffee drinker...(I have to resort to sitting in front of the fan, doing Darth Vader impressions to entertain myself... )...I'm thrilled that you, at least, have found a solution...=) Nice job!

I saw the NY mayor on TV last night saying "it's not just hot - it can KILL!!" - I WAS going to say that you guys don't know hot 'til you've been in an Aussie summer, but I've never been so hot as I was in Palm Springs Ca, last month - meanwhile, I'm lighting the fire in my bar at 2pm to try to get some of the winter cold out of the room before it opens at 7pm - just so you know - great subbing, Michael - I couldn't place the OS, but just reading a couple of your lines brought it instantly back - 555
