“There’s a Hotter Place”
If you think that it is hot here,
Then you might be surprised to know
There’s another place that’s far, far hotter,
A place where you never want to go.
Here the summer has certainly parched us.
Here the crops are all failing fast.
But there’s another place where it’s much, much hotter,
And the heat wave lasts and lasts.
Here you can find you a bucket
With ice and cold water or beer.
But there’s a place where it’s so much hotter,
People beg for the drop of a tear.
Oh, you think it’s so terribly hot here,
You avoid it be staying inside.
But there’s a place where there’s no hiding from it:
The Hell of the lost who have died.
