96 Degrees In The Shade
Third World Lyrics


Ninety-six degrees in the shade
Real hot, hear me when I say
In the shade

Said it was ninety-six degrees in the shade
Ten thousand soldiers on parade
Taking I and I to meet a big fat boy
Sent from overseas
The queen employ
Now excellency before you I come
With my representation
You know where I'm coming from

They caught me on the loose
Trying to be free
And they show I a noose
On the cotton tree
Entertainment for you
Martyrdom for me

Ninety-six degrees in the shade
Real hot, hear me when I say in the shade
Ninety-six degrees in the shade
Real hot, hear me when I say in the shade

Some may suffer, some may burn
But I know that one day all of my children gonna learn
Sure as the sun shine, way up in the skies
Today I stand here a victim, yes
the truth is I'll never die

Ninety-six degrees in the shade
Real hot, hear me when I say in the shade
Ninety-six degrees in the shade
Real hot, hear me when I say in the shade

Ninety-six degrees in the shade
Real hot, hear me when I say in the shade
Ninety-six degrees in the shade
Real hot, ooh yes, in the shade

Ninety-six degrees in the shade
Real hot, jah jah know, in the shade
Ninety-six degrees in the shade
Real hot, hear me when I say in the shade

Ninety-six degrees in the shade
Real hot, hear me when I say in the shade
Ninety-six degrees in the shade
Real hot, hear me when I say in the shade

Said it was 96 degrees in the shade
Ten thousand soldiers on parade
Taking I and I to meet a big fat boy
Sent from overseas
The queen employ
Excellency before you I come
With my representation
You know where I'm coming from

You caught me on the loose
Fighting to be free
Now you show me a noose
On the cotton tree
Entertainment for you
Martyrdom for me

[Chorus] (x2)
96 degrees in the shade
Real hot in the shade

Some may suffer and some may burn
But i know that one day my people will learn
As sure as the sun shines, way up in the sky
Today i stand here a victim, the truth is I'll never die

96 degrees in the shade
Real hot in the shade

My parents played this album on their honey moon. I decided I look into reggae cause my dad really liked reggae. Thank you dad for giving me life. This ones for you.

I was fortunate to meet this band.. I was working for a magazine in Hawaii 35 yrs ago and I hooked up with a band member from the opening group and so I got to tour the islands for the week with them and be backstage.
