It’s hotter than a frying pan
And hotter than the sun.
It’s hotter than it’s been
Since record-keeping was begun.

It’s hotter than a lava flow
And hotter than a fire.
It’s hotter than a couple
Who are burning with desire.

It’s hotter than the desert,
Even hotter than a chili.
I know that these comparisons
Are overwrought and silly…

But that is how I’m sure it feels,
At least it would to me,
If I would venture out and leave
My icy-cold A/C!

    What did we do before we never left our door. Nice cool drinks and lovely shade. It's all perspective on having it made.
