“96 Degrees in the Shade” by Third World

This reggae song is more about fighting for freedom then the heat. But it has a
nice beat and rhythm to it.

Some may suffer and some may burn
But I know that one day my people will learn
As sure as the sun shines, way up in the sky
Today I stand here a victim the truth is I’ll never die

See these ice cubes, see these Ice Creams?
