The Heat and the Humidity

Listen to this article

Looked in the mirror, trimmed his mustache

Handsome Harry Backstage with a pocketful of cash

He sprayed his face with some cheap cologne,

snapped the brim of his hat and walked out the door

 

The heat, the heat, the heat and the humidity

The heat, the heat, the heat and the humidity

 

She re-lined her lips for the thirteenth time

Checked her foundation and she found age lines

Itʼs be so much easier if it werenʼt so damned hot

But better late than never was her very next thought

 

The heat, the heat, the heat and the humidity

The heat, the heat, the heat and the humidity

 

The hole in his forehead was right where she aimed

a hundred degrees at midnight and itʼs starting to rain

On TV she thought the guns never sounded so loud

as she backed into the gathering crowd

 

The heat, the heat, the heat and the humidity

The heat, the heat, the heat and the humidity

 

The gendarmes caught her half a block away

they cuffed her and told her she had a right to stay

silent but she said no, no, no, I need to talk

I didnʼt mean to kill him but itʼs so damned hot!

 

The heat, the heat, the heat and the humidity

The heat, the heat, the heat and the humidity
