I took two performances and made them into a video. It’s been a while since performing live was possible! I’m looking forward to when we can do it again.

Here is the video, hope you enjoy it:

    Hi,Paul,
    Enjoyed Hot Day in the City, especially as we are heading into the long, cold winter! Didn’t catch all the words, but loved the mouth organ & guitar soli. Thanks

      Hi Irene,

      Thank you so much for letting me know. I was lucky to work with some excellent musicians on this song. I wrote it for my life-partner, for her birthday – tried to make it a little racy, but hopefully not too much!

      I’d like you to hear the words so here they are:

      HOT DAY IN THE CITY

      Hot day in the city
      Makes it hard to think (2x)
      Her voice on the phone, like a cool glass a water
      Makes me wanna have a drink

      Bad day in the office
      Seems like such a waste (2x)
      Her voice on the phone, like a cool glass a water
      Makes me wanna have a taste

      Long wait for the train home
      Makes me wanna drive (2x)
      Her voice on the phone, like a cool glass a water
      Makes me glad to be alive

      (instrumental)

      I’m walking down her driveway
      And the sky is turning red (2x)
      Her voice on the phone, like a cool glass a water
      I’m thinking ’bout what she said

      She’ll be barefoot in a sun dress
      Legs crossed in a chair
      Sitting by the electric fan
      A cool breeze in her hair

      I’m going into her house now
      While the sun is sinkin’ down
      and I ain’t coming back out
      I won’t be coming back out
      I ain’t coming back out
      Till the sun comes up again.

      Good luck with the long, cold winter!

    I downloaded it from Youtube …

    Now I might just have to buy your album,
    but I’m holding out hope that you will send it for free to your old college friends as a Christmas Present. I’ll send you my address in a private E-Mail.

    You might just have to go out onto the street and play until this ridiculousness passes.

    Regards,

    TimE.

      Hi Tim,

      I’ll certainly send them out to old college friends; yes, please send your address.

      It will take a bit of time because I’m still finishing up the production…

      If playing on the street is what it takes, so be it!

      Best,
      Paul
