about

This number dates back to the 80's (remember them?), and is easily the oldest tune in the standing waves songbook. Somebody was thinkin' about becoming a country music songwriter, I guess. Funny how that worked out.

lyrics

You been whistlin' Dixie long enough
I'm gonna change that tune
I'll show you notes you ain't never heard
but you'll be singin' 'em soon
I'll just take that there termometer
and blow it into little bits

Cause if ya can't take the heat
don't stand in the kitchen

Hours pass like minutes honey
and minutes feel like days
It's taken me months to get one little kiss
ain't got no time to waste
If I wanted ice I'd go to the freezer
instead of your fingertips

Cause if ya can't take the heat
don't stand in the kitchen

Don't stand in the kitchen
Don't stand in the kitchen
Ready or not, here I come, ya better not turn & run
Don't stand in the kitchen

If your June is hot, I'll give you July
and toss in August for free
You'll be sweatin' buckets of icicles
at just one little look from me
So hold your excuses and 'not tonights'
I'm just not buyin' it

Cause if ya can't take the heat
don't stand in the kitchen

Don't stand in the kitchen
Don't stand in the kitchen
Ready or not, here I come, ya better not turn & run

I've been up and down this road before
On your way out, please don't slam the door

We've been dancin' a cool slow one babe,
it's time for callin' it quits

Cause if ya can't take the heat
don't stand in the kitchen

Don't stand in the kitchen
Don't stand in the kitchen
Ready or not, here I come
Don't stand in the kitchen
Don't stand in the kitchen
Ready or not, here I come, ya better not turn & run

Please don't stand in the kitchen
Please don't stand in the kitchen
