' When it's hot,
Truly hot,"
Is it funny? It is not!
It's a tragedy, that's what !"
You just sit around and pant,
For escape the heat you cart'tj
And distressing is youHot.
Hpw you sweat
When you worjk!
How you fret
When you shirk 1
Since you scarce can do a jot
When it's hot.
You're dUpleased with what
you've got,
And you think the World's ail rot,
While you dream and scheme and
Of some pleasant gardeh spot,
Or some cool and dripping grot
With a waiter who will trot
With some long and icy drink
what's the use
That's a dream !
All that YOtJ can do is steam
Like the deuce,
.Seethe and simmer like a pot
When it's hot,
TRULY hot!
