Primus - The Air Is Getting Slippery Lyrics

It's incredibly hot in here today, incredibly hot in here
It's incredibly hot in here today, incredibly hot in here
The air is getting slipper and it's not to my surprise
My heart, it beats irregularly and the sweat it fills my eyes
I do not mind what I excrete 'cause
I'm here to make a buck
And those that cannot take the heat can take a flying...
Forgive me if I hesitate
It's incredibly hot in here today, incredibly hot in here

The dogs are barking merrily as Jerry sits on high
If you've studied your Floyd property, you'd know that pigs could fly
Now if you want an encore you might hear it is luck
But me, I'd rather play Residents, 'cause I don't give a...
Forgive me if I hesitate
It's incredibly hot in here today, incredibly hot in here

Now, Fatty, he's a hell of a guy but he sweats like a dancing mule
He likes to hang out at Checker Gas with the Chets he knew from high school
He sold enough crystal meth to buy a stepside truck
But if you ask me twice I'd say the boy ain't worth a...
Forgive me if I hesitate
It's incredibly hot in here today, incredibly hot in here

The act of perspiration is far beyond control
If the heat compels to aspirate please try not to miss the bowl
If sweatiness makes you horny, well darlin' I think you're in luck
'Cause all this clever banter gives me the urge to FUCK

    I'm real sick of the shat out fetuses like you believing that phrase and I'm tired of the asshat mongaloids that still use that phrase. "Primus Sucks!" was the slogan Primus used in the early days of their career, but now it's all washed up. Now shut up and go to bed.

    Mike Henny

    @James Leslie But can you explain the cat?

  85. Yvan Cluet

    I wanted to thumbs up this comment dause it's exactly what i think and what fucking bores me on every Primus video but i accidentally thumbed it down and it doesn't want to correct even when i hit thumbs up button. Destiny ?

  86. Yvan Cluet

    You need about 20 seconds to figure out everybody says "Primus Sucks" on a Primus video straight after discovering and listening to your first primus song

  87. Yvan Cluet

    It used to be their slogan, but now it annoys Les.

  88. ROLLKlCK

    This song is absurd. I laughed my ass off when they played this in Woodstock '94 in front of +200k people... everyone was moshing to it xD

  89. Tommy Toadman

    ya, Primus Sucks!!!
