Irving Berlin Heat Wave Lyrics

Last updated: 06/19/2012 06:23:01 AM

A heat wave blew into town last week
She came from the island of Martinique
The can can she dances will make you fry
The can can is really the reason why

We're having a heat wave
A tropical heat wave
The temperature's rising
It isn't surprising
She certainly can, can can

She started a heat wave
By letting her seat wave
And in such a way that
The customers say that
She certainly can, can can

Gee, her anatomy
Makes the mercury
Jump up to ninety three, yes sir!

We're having a heat wave
Tropical heat wave
The way the she moves that
Thermometer proves that
She certainly can, can can

It's so hot, the weatherman will tell you
A record's been made
It's so hot, a coat of tan
Will cover your face in the shade

It's so hot, the coldest maiden
Feels just as warm as the bride
It's so hot, a chicken laid an egg on the street
And it fried

We're having a heat wave
A tropical heat wave
The temperature's rising
It isn't surprising
She certainly can, can can

She started a heat wave
By letting her seat wave
And in such a way
That the customers say that
She certainly can, can can

Gee, her anatomy
Makes that mercury
Jump up to ninety-three, that's hot man!

We're having a heat wave
A tropical heat wave
The way that she moves that
Thermometer proves that
She certainly can, can can
Yes, she certainly can, can can
She certainly can, can can
