Sure was a long, long, long hot summer night
As far as my eyes could see (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Well my heart was way down, cold, cold winter storm
Well my darlin' where can you be?
Where can you be baby? Where can you be?

There were three sugar walls and a two candy cane windows
But the serious mood melted ah all those in sight
Everybody's on fire but I'm a-snowing in a cold blizzard

Where are you in this a hot cold summer?
Where are you in this a hot cold summer?
Where are you in this a hot cold summer?
God, God, God

Around about this time the telephone blew its horn across the room
Scared little Annie clean out of her mind, out of her mind
Roman the Candle he peeps out of his peekaboo hide and seek
And grabbed little Annie from the ceiling just in time
And the telephone just keeps on screamin'

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

"Hello," said my shaky voice, "Well, how you doing?"
I started to stutter, "Ah, ah, can't you tell that I'm doin' fine?" (Can't you tell I'm doin' fine)
There was my baby talkin' she's way down 'cross the border
She says, I'm gonna hurry to ya, I've been a fool and I'm tired of cryin'"
(Ah, ah) Said, "I'm tired Jimi"
(Ah, ah)

Yeah, I said a long, long, hot summer night
As far as my eyes could see (As far as my eyes)
I could feel the heat comin' on as my baby's gettin' closer
I'm so glad that my baby's comin' to rescue me
So glad that my baby's comin' to rescue me
So glad that my baby's comin' to rescue me
Rescue, rescue me, rescue
Rescue me, rescue
Rescue, rescue, what'd I say?
Rescue me, rescue me
Rescue, rescue me, rescue
Rescue me
