The temperature's rising, it isn't surprising

It's the longest day of the year - Midsummer Day - and the weathermen have predicted it's going to get hotter than even the last few days (which have been scorchers). If the thermometers reach 34C, it will officially be the hottest June day in Britain since the fabled "Summer of '76"!

Here's an appropriate number, methinks, for a Heatwave...

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
In such a way that
The customers say that
She certainly can can-can.

Gee, her anatomy
Makes the mercury
Jump to ninety-three.

We're having a heat wave,
A tropical heat wave,
The way that she moves
That thermometer proves
That she certainly can can-can.


  1. Crikey! Even WE'RE having a cooler day than you folks.

    1. ...yet Ottowa and Montreal are on the same latitude as Bologna and Bordeaux, and Toronto is the same latitude as Nice!


    2. Well, it certainly explains why it comes as such a shock to us Brits, being on a parallel with Moscow, Newfoundland, Novosibirsk and Ulaan Baatar, and all... Jx
