Lord, I aint never seen weather like this
it's a hundred and ten in the shade
It feels like the devil moved here himself
To see the trouble he made
Everybodys bout to go insane,
they're crazy from the heat
Nobody wants to go outside,
there's danger in the street

it's gonna be a long, hot summer
People dream of leavin town
Get ready for a long, hot summer
Feel the hammer cmon down, comin down

You see the heat comin up from the sidewalk
You can feel the temperature rise
All I see is a blazin sun
Burning a hole in the sky
I never though that it could be like this
24 hours a day
it's too hot to sleep, were in trouble so deep
And you know there's no running away

it's gonna be a long, hot summer
This place is like a burning hell
Get ready for a long, hot summer
There aint no water in the well
it's a long, hot summer
A lot of sweat and misery
it's a long, hot summer
it's killin you and killin me

So you scream and shout, but there's no way out
You just live with a lock on your door
there's a fire in the sky and the earth is so dry
Like a cracking ground you can't take anymore

it's three oclock in the morning (don't do it)
You wait for the sirens to moan (don't do it)
You stare at the trigger, but somehow you figure
You don't feel like dying alone (don't do it)
The mean streets are getting meaner,
Everybodys got a gun
This aint no city, it's a nightmare darlin
Were all dying in the sun

it's gonna be a long, hot summer
People dream of leavin town
Get ready for a long, hot summer
Feel the hammer cmon down, comin down
it's a long, hot summer
haven't seen a drop of rain
it's a long, hot summer
Nothins gonna kill the pain

    Long hot summer to me means that song is so hot that people want to go out with you. Be careful some people hate you.
