    96 degrees in the shade,
    Real hot, in the shade..
    96 degrees in the shade,
    Real hot, (whoah-yes) in the shade.

    Said it was 96 degrees, in the shade..
    Ten thousand soldiers, on parade..
    Taking I and I to meet a big fat boy,
    Sent from overseas,
    The queen employ.
    Excellency, before you I come,
    With my representation,
    You know where I’m coming from.

    You caught me on the loose,
    Fighting to be free,
    Now you show me a noose,
    On the cotton tree,
    Entertainment for you,
    Martyrdom for me.

    96 degrees in the shade,
    Real hot, in the shade..
    96 degrees in the shade,
    Real hot, (whoah-yes) in the shade.

    (interlude)

    Some may suffer, and some may burn,
    But I know that one day, my people will learn,
    As sure as the sun shines, way up in the sky,
    Today I stand here a victim, the truth is I’ll never die.

    96 degrees in the shade,
    Real hot, in the shade..
    96 degrees in the shade,
    Real hot, (whoah-yes) in the shade.

    96 degrees in the shade,
    Real hot, in the shade..
    96 degrees in the shade,
    Real hot, (whoah-yes) in the shade.

    96 degrees in the shade,
    Real hot, in the shade..
    96 degrees in the shade,
    Real hot, (whoah-yes) in the shade..
