The video where this song was originally performed can be found here:


I'm running mad lately,
It's too hot this January.
Heat's gotten too my head,
Got me going cuckoo crazy.

Too many people catching my eye.
Need to stop staring so I
Turn my head up to the sky.
These birds are singing at me,
But it sounds like they're laughing at me,
What do they find so funny?
I swear I'm going crazy.

I'm on my knees,
Begging please,
Oh bring this summer to an end so I can get some sleep.
I'm tossing turning,
What'd I do to deserve this?
You know I need to cool down.

I've been lonely lately,
Too cold to go outside,
But I'm still woken by the drunken cries out in the night,
I should be with them really,
But this weathers got me feeling blue,
As my lips and fingertips,
I'll admit I miss my crew.
What'll I do?

I'm on my knees,
Begging please.
Oh bring this winter to an end just so I can see,
Past the fog outside my window.
I can't wait to go away.
You know I need to cool down.
