"Long Hot Summer" as written by and Miranda Eleanor De Fonbrune/higgins Cooper....
I know you like to wear my dressing-gown,
When I'm not there.
I guess you like it in my shoes.

Just coz you drive a Mazarati
And the ladies stare
Don't mean you'll go as fast as I do.

I know it's summer in the city
And the sun is high
But you can play it cool again
Coz boy I seen you disco dancing
With your pants on fire
We need a little tropical rain

So baby, baby
Watch the needle when your heading south
You drive me crazy
Just remember you can burn me out
So get down

It's been a long, hot summer
And it's ninety five degrees in the shade
It's only Sunday morning
And I need that Friday feeling again

You put me in a fever 50 stories high
And suddenly I'm freezing
And I don't know why
It's been a long, hot summer
And I'm shaking like a cool lemonade

If you want to get fresh
Get outta my car
Coz the boys up here are going to fast
I'm taking my time now

If you want to fly high
Keep outta the sun
When your fingers start to run
It's no fun
So why don't you climb now

If you want to get fresh
Then take a cold shower
Put your back on ice
Before you turn sour
Nobody can fool me

Now I'm cleaning my head
And dusting my eyes
Every time I feel the temperature rise
I need you to cool me

I'm partied out of house and home
So baby if you fight me
How you gonna like me

Runnin down that open road
So think before you bite me
How you gonna get back home

It's been a long, hot summer
And it's ninety five degrees in the shade
It's only Sunday morning
And I need that Friday feeling again

You put me in a fever 50 stories high
And suddenly I'm freezing
And I don't know why
It's been a long, hot summer
And I'm shaking like a cool lemonade

Coz I
So why do you bite me (x2)

A little late to take it slow
But I couldn't wait to party

At the cannon ball
Not what I wanted
Now I've seen it all
So find me

I've ricochet
Around the world
Drinking pink champagne
It's easy!

    General CommentI think we know the real meaning of this song. The lyric "Watch the needle when you're heading south" make it pretty obvious. Can't believe this song was meant for Herbie...

    General CommentFrom the singles boxset: Long Hot Summer was written by Xenomania when the team were in LA.
    Xenomania visited the Disney offices in LA and were asked to write a song that would feature in the Lindsay Lohan 'Herbie' movie. This was the eventual result, although, for various reasons, the track never made the movie.

    My OpinionI love this song, it's in my top three faves of theirs. I love from "If you wanna get fresh get out of my car" to "But I just can't lie, now I'm queasy." I could kinda see this as a song for Herbie...
