Its Hot Don!

2012 Was Hottest Ever in U.S.

3 Fire! I'll take you to burn.
Fire! I'll take you to learn.
I'll see you burn!
You fought hard and you saved and learned
but all of it's going to burn.
And your mind your tiny mind you know you've really been so blind.

Now's your time burn your mind.
You're falling far too far behind.
Oh no, oh no, oh no, you gonna burn!

Fire! To destroy all you've done.
Fire! To end all you've become.
I'll feel your burn!

You know that it would be untrue

You know that I would be a liar

If I was to say to you

Girl, we couldn't get much higher

Come on baby, light my fire

Come on baby, light my fire

Try to set the night on fire

The time to hesitate is through

No time to wallow in the mire

Try now we can only lose

And our love become a funeral pyre

Come on baby, light my fire

Come on baby, light my fire

Try to set the night on fire, yeah

9 Well if its as alarmist as "Australia's hottest average temperature ever recorded" it will be 0.16degrees hotter than the previous recorded 40 years ago, when Australia was still measuring temperatures in Fahrenheit and doing it by eye making paper records. There was not even the possibility of making records within 0.5 degrees accuracy then, let alone the massive increase in urbanisation and hence heat island effect since then and the almost doubling of our population.
