    Lyrics

    Pre>
    C#m
    I ain't stopping fingers keep bopping
    F#m b e
    Swing band rocking from the street to the bar
    C#m
    West coast's dated music's overrated
    F#m a b
    Here it on the radio in every car

    Chorus
    E a b d e d b a
    The heat in harlem the heat in harlem, yep
    E a b d b
    The heat in harlem the heat in harlem
    A b
    And the heat of the soul

    Ring that number hear that timbre
    Watch my senses go right out the door
    Born on the pavement that's where it happens
    Rocking the apartment on the fifteenth floor

    Chorus

    Bridge
    F#m a e
    And when the heat burns your feet, got to jump to save your skin
    F#m a
    And when you jump the water pump
    B f#m
    The water just rushes away in the burning heat
    A e f#m a b
    Ooh yep, save your skin, uuh

    We've been screaming, screaming through a jukebox
    Screaming at someone that don't even care
    Born on the pavement that's where it happens
    Feel like fire in the midnight air

    Chorus twice

    Slow bridge em a em a em
    (alternaties like this with sometimes a em taking over)
    A em a em dm em dm em
    Look at the heat wave got everybody, got everybody under it's spell
    Sit back and wonder stand or go under,
    or feel the thunder starting to swell
    The heat in harlem, the heat in harlem the heat in
    harlem punches then rolls
    No big decision no aircondition the heat in harlem is the heat of the soul
    Mamma is crying daddy is trying brother is working for everything you own
    Sister is dreaming, dreaming of broadway around the
    corner a million miles from home

    The heat in harlem the heat in harlem the heat in harlem punches then rolls
    No big decision no aircondition the heat in harlem is the heat of the soul

    The heat of the soul the heat of the soul the heat
    of the soul the heat of the soul
    Down in the heatwave, yeah down down in the heatwave
    down in the heatwave, yeah
    Down in the heat, heat, yeah watch the moon come down
    in the heat down in harlem town
    Watch it all come down in the heat down in harlem town
    The heat of the soul the heat of the soul
    Watch it all come down in the heat down in harlem town
    Watch the moon come down in the heat down in harlem town
    Down in the heatwave, yeah down in the heatwave, yeah
    Take it down in the heat heat yeah the heat of the soul
    The heat of the soul

    Down in the heat heat yeah down in the heat heat yeah
    The heat of the soul the heat of the soul
    Down in the heat heat yeah down in the heat heat uh uh
    Down in the heat heat yeah down in the heat heat yeah
    Down in the heat heat uh uh down in the heat heat yeah fades
