Lyrics
Too hot
This town is too hot
Now they're calling for their guns
About to spoil the rude boys' funs
But rude boys never give up their guns
It's too hot (too hot, too hot)

No man
Can tell them what to do (too hot, too hot)
Pound for pound
They say they're ruder than you (too hot, too hot)
They are the boss
And no back down
You might have a couple you like
Choose your burial site
Take insurance, make up your will
Come out and tell them, find them

The soldiers came back to you
Without them
The police force are afraid
They can't even touch them
They say "you think you're bad?"
"Why don't you come out yourself"
These boys are calling for a fight, fighting tonight, they don't lie
It's too hot

(Too hot) too hot
(Too hot) too hot
(Too hot) too hot
(Too hot) too hot
(Too hot) too hot
(Too hot) too hot
(Too hot) too hot
(Too hot) too hot
(Too hot) too hot
(Too hot) too hot
(Too hot) too hot
(Too hot) too hot
(Too hot) too hot
(Too hot) too hot
(Too hot) too hot
(Too hot) too hot
Too hot
