Another hot and sticky summer night,
and the thunder storms are rollin’ in
so I head down to the basement
with my coffee cup full ‘a gin
I’ve got all my favorite records
Rock ‘n roll and them ol’ time blues:
Angry screamin’ and lonely dreamin’
by folks who got nothin’ to lose
It’s cool and it’s safe in the basement
while the storm outside gets more frightenin'
I still hear the threat of the thunder
But can’t see the flash of the lightenin’
