2 million years we were in love
earthly sweethearts
homo sapiens was brand new
we took your gifts but traveled light
living simply, for the life
i remember when we turned away
pollution, poisons, drills and waste
can't imagine that this love is through
feeling the pain, world
when we lose

oh, it's too hot (too hot)
co2 hot, lately (too hot)
gotta stop the swelter
gotta stop the insane
it's too hot (too hot)
co2 hot, lately (too hot)
gotta cool this danger
what a mess we made
not long ago
symbiotic love
oh, my love

flyin' high we didn't take the time
to stop the ego and the greed
now we see that the things we buy
changes the climate radically
i'll rekindle love's fever
eco heart, world
eco life
reduce reuse repair recycle
healing the pain, world
don't want to lose

oh, it's too hot (too hot)
co2 hot, lately (too hot)
gotta stop the droughts
gotta stop the hurricanes
it's too hot (too hot)
co2 hot, lately (too hot)
gotta cool this danger
our global warming made
.(my) human friends
be green again
healing the pain
[instrumental interlude]

oh, it's too hot (too hot)
co2 hot, lately (too hot)
gotta stop the swelter
gotta stop the insane
it's too hot (too hot)
co2 hot, lately (too hot)
gotta cool this danger
our global warming made
it's too hot (too hot)
co2 hot, lately (too hot)
gotta stop the floods
gotta stop the hurricanes
oh, it's too hot (too hot)
so so hot, lately (too hot)

It's Too Hot / I'm Too Hot
Excerpt via : http://climaterealityproject.org/2012/07/31/hey-austin-im-too-hot/
Are you starting to feel the heat? Is it feeling different than just hot summer weather? Well, thanks to our warming climate, the heat is getting worse. Scientists have found that climate change is putting extreme heat on steroids — resulting in more record highs than ever before and making heat waves more severe.

To draw attention to this fact, we’ll be heading to Austin, Texas this week. Starting this Wednesday, August 1, come meet us at our traveling ice cream truck and help spread the word. We’ll be giving away free ice cream, cool gifts, and plenty of information about climate change.

When you get to the truck, all you need to do is write a quick tweet, Facebook post or foursquare check-in that tells us how the heat has been impacting you. Use the hashtag #ImTooHot. Then, because it really is too hot, join us for some ice cream. It’s that easy. And while you’re out and about in Austin, check out our freestanding wall mural, where you can add your own personalized message about how this heat is affecting you or your community.

Kool and the Gang:
via en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kool_%26_the_Gang
Kool and the Gang is an American jazz, R&B, soul, and funk group, originally formed in 1964 as the Jazziacs based in Jersey City, New Jersey.

They went through several musical phases during the course of their recording career, starting out with a purist jazz sound, then becoming practitioners of R&B and funk, progressing to a smooth pop-funk ensemble, and in the post-millennium creating music with a modern, electro-pop sound.

They have sold over 70 million albums worldwide.

The group's main members over the years included brothers Robert Bell (known as "Kool") on bass and Ronald Bell on tenor saxophone, lead vocalist James "J.T." Taylor, George Brown on drums, Robert Mickens on trumpet, Dennis Thomas on alto saxophone, Claydes Charles Smith on guitar, and Rick Westfield on keyboards. The Bell brothers' father was an acquaintance of Thelonious Monk, and the brothers were friends with Leon Thomas.

In 1964 Robert formed an instrumental band called the Jazziacs with five high-school friends.[citation needed]They changed their name to "Kool and the Flames" in 1967, then "Kool and the Gang" in 1969 (to avoid confusion with James Brown's Famous Flames) and were signed by Gene Redd to his new record label De-Lite Records in 1969.[3] They first hit the pop charts with the release of their debut eponymous album.

plus from *Kool and the Gang's* ladies night album:
it's too hot (too hot)
too hot, lady (too hot)
gotta run for shelter
gotta run for shade
it's too hot (too hot)
so, so hot, lady (too hot)
gotta cool this anger
oh, gotta cool this mess we made
it's so, so hot, baby (too hot)
yes, it's so hot
i can't take it
i can't stand no more, baby
we were once lovers (too hot)
we took our vows (too hot)
we're man and wife forever
whoooooooooa (too hot)
whoooooooooa
baby (too hot)

At seventeen we fell in love
High school sweethearts
Love was so brand new
We took the vows of man and wife
Forever, for life
I remember how we made our way
A little patience, the time we prayed
Can't imagine that this love is through
Feeling the pain, girl
When you lose

Oh, it's too hot (too hot)
Too hot, lady (too hot)
Gotta run for shelter
Gotta run for shade
It's too hot (too hot)
Too hot, lady (too hot)
Gotta cool this anger
What a mess we made
So long ago
You were my love
Oh, my love

Flyin' high we never took the time
To stop and feel the need
Funny how those years go by
Changing you, changing me
I remember love's fever
In our hearts, girl
And in our minds
Can't imagine that this love is through
Feeling the pain, girl
When you lose

Oh, it's too hot (too hot)
Too hot, lady (too hot)
Gotta run for shelter
Gotta run for shade
It's too hot (too hot)
Too hot, lady (too hot)
Gotta cool this anger
What a mess we made
So long ago
You were my love
Feeling the pain

[Instrumental Interlude]

Oh, it's too hot (too hot)
Too hot, lady (too hot)
Gotta run for shelter
Gotta run for shade
It's too hot (too hot)
Too hot, lady (too hot)
Gotta cool this anger
From this mess that we made

It's too hot (too hot)
Too hot, lady (too hot)
Gotta run for shelter
Gotta run for shade
It's too hot (too hot)
So, so hot, lady (too hot)
Gotta cool this anger
Oh, gotta cool this mess we made
It's so, so hot, baby (too hot)
Yes, it's so hot
I can't take it
I can't stand no more, baby
We were once lovers (too hot)
We took our vows (too hot)
We're man and wife forever
Whoooooooooa (too hot)
Whoooooooooa
Baby (too hot)
Baby, please won't you listen (too hot)...
