    Can I say more?  Listen to this and if it’s rather “too British” go with it anyway.


    Lyrics to Mad Dogs & Englishmen:
    In tropical climes
    There are certain times
    Of day
    When all the citizens retire
    To take their clothes off and perspire.
    It's one of those rules
    That the greatest fools
    Because the sun is far too sultry
    And one must avoid its ultry
    Violet ray.

    The natives grieve
    When the white men leave
    Their huts.
    Because they're obviously,

    Mad Dogs & Englishmen
    Go out in the midday sun.
    The Japanese don't care to,
    The Chinese wouldn't dare to,
    Hindus and Argentines
    Sleep firmly from twelve to one,
    But Englishmen
    Detest a
    In the Philippines
    They have lovely screens
    To protect you from the glare.
    In the Malay states
    There are hats like plates
    Which the Britishers won't wear.
    At twelve noon
    The natives swoon,
    And no further work is done,
    But mad dogs and Englishmen
    Go out in the midday sun!

    Such a surprise
    For the eastern eyes
    To see,
    That though the English are effete,
    They're quite impervious to heat.
    When the white man rides
    Every native hides
    In glee.
    Because the simple creatures hope he
    Will impale his solar topee
    On a tree.

    It seems such a shame
    When the English claim
    The Earth,
    That they give rise
    To such hilarity
    And mirth.
    Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha,
    Hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo,
    He, he, he, he, he, he, he, he,
    Hm, hm, hm, hm, hm, hm.

    Mad dogs and Englishmen
    Go out in the midday sun.
    The toughest Burmese bandit
    Can never understand it.
    In Rangoon
    The heat of noon
    Is just what the natives shun,
    They put their Scotch
    Or Rye down
    And lie down.
    In a jungle town
    Where the sun beats down
    To the rage of man and beast,
    The English garb
    Of the English sahib
    Merely gets a bit more creased.
    In Bangkok
    At twleve'o'clock
    They foam at the mouth and run,
    But mad dogs and Englishmen
    Go out in the midday sun.

    Mad dogs and Englishmen
    Go out in the midday sun.
    The smallest Malay rabbit
    Deplores this foolish habit.
    In Hong Kong
    They strike a gong
    And fire off a noonday gun
    To reprimand
    Each inmate
    Who's in late.
    In the Mangrove swamps
    Where the python romps
    There is peace from twelve to two,
    Even caribous
    Lie around and snooze,
    For there's nothing else to do.
    In Bengal,
    To move at all
    Is seldom if ever done.
    But mad dogs and Englishmen
    Go out in the midday
    Out in the midday
    Out in the midday
    Out in the midday
    Out in the midday
    Out in the midday
    Out in the midday sun!
