Tom Robinson Band – Long Hot Summer lyrics

Hey Joe, get up and go

Wouldn't like to tell you twice

Hey mac, get off my back

Didn't ask your advice

There's all this heat

Out in the street

Telling us to move along

It's gonna be a long hot summer

From now on
Hey man, I don't understand

We ain't hardly bothering you

Say fag, you're just a drag

We ain't nearly finished with you

There's all this heat

Out on the beat

Telling us we don't belong

It's gonna be a long hot summer

From now on

Hey Dan, give us a hand

We won't make it alone

But we can all make a stand

Next time the whistle's blown

So get your feet

Out on the street
When you hear the heat is on

It's gonna be a long hot summer

From now on
Look out sisters
Look out brothers

We won't be fooled again
