It’s Getting Hot In Here

It’s Getting Hot In Here
(Eric Kornfeld/Bette Sussman)

SOPH
MY LIFE IS JUST A PURPLE FEATHER BOA
A G-STRING AND SOME TASTEFUL NUDITY
THEN ONE DAY WARDROBE SAID,
HEY, PUT THIS ON YOUR HEAD
IT’S ONLY HALF THE SIZE OF TENNESSEE

I’VE BEEN AROUND SINCE VEGAS WAS INVENTED
AND I’VE WORN EVERY COSTUME THAT THEY GOT
THOUGH SOME OF THEM WERE LARGE —
THIS THING’S A FUCKIN’ BARGE
AND HAVE I MENTIONED – HOLY SHIT, IT’S HOT!

HERE I AM NO NEED TO SEARCH
UP HERE ON MY FEATHERED PERCH
SWEATIN’ LIKE A WHORE IN CHURCH
BOY, IT’S HOT IN HERE

AIR’S SO THICK I CANNOT BREATHE
HOTTER THAN TEL AVIV
(IF) I DROP DEAD, YOU BETTER GRIEVE
OY, IT’S HOT IN HERE

GIRLS
EVERY TIME SHE’S ALL DRESSED UP

AND LOOKING LIKE A QUEEN

GIRLS
TEMPERATURES CLIMB TO THE TOP

SOPH
AND I’M EMITTING STEAM!

IT’S AS HOT AS IT CAN BE
NINETY PLUS – JUST LIKE ME!
WHAT’S UNDER HERE,
YOU WANNA’ SEE?
OY, IT’S HOT IN HERE!

GIRLS
OUTDOORS, IN A STEADY BREEZE
