Broadjam Member Reviews

Has a nice jazzy flow to it. It swings but in a more of a flowing sort of way. Love that about it. The 50's type vocal work well for this tune and the lyrics are very expressive in old school sort of way. Nice effort here, enjoyed it.

    - Groove Fondue

A verry nice voice and a professional arrangement. A good build up, starting with the piano first and than the orchestra, really nice and smooth and easy to listen to.Good job!!

Lyrics

We've been movin' kinda slow
It seems
It's a temperature thing
How I wish it was spring
Or autumn
With its football air
But it's not, so we're coastin'
'Cause baby, it's roastin'
Toastin'

It's hotter than hades
It's tough on old ladies
It's a Scorcher outside
You can join my parade
To seek some sycamore shade
Before our senses get fried
With our backs to a tree
We'll sip some sweet, cloudy tea
Toast this mean summer sun
While we pray for a breeze
To knock the heat to its knees
Gotta be a hundred and one
Plus one, plus one

I've contemplated moves
To cooler climes
But I know from the past
That this heat just can't last
So, copin' is the best I can do
I'll, suspend my debatin'
While patiently waitin'
Evaporatin'

It's hotter than hades
etc.
