Cruel SummerBananaramaHot summer streets
And the pavements are burning
I sit around
Trying to smile but
The air is so heavy and dry
Strange voices are saying
(What did they say?)
Things I can’t understand
It’s too close for comfort
This heat has got
Right out of handIt’s a cruel, (cruel), cruel summer
(Leaving me) leaving me here on my own
It’s a cruel, (it’s a cruel), cruel summer
Now you’re goneIt’s a cruel, (cruel), cruel summer
(Leaving me) leaving me here on my own
It’s a cruel, (it’s a cruel), cruel summer
Now you’re goneThe city is crowded
My friends are away
And I’m on my own
It’s too hot to handle
So I got to get up and goIt’s a cruel, (cruel), cruel summer
(Leaving me) leaving me here on my own
