"When it's 110 degrees in the shade"

My name in lights I do not crave

For public ardor I was not made

About my talents you need not rave

When it's 110 degrees in the shade


I am "of the meadows": my name, desPres ("daypray")

Of ancestral shepherds is my family made

Please spare me from familial pride

When it's 110 degrees in the shade


Why talk about weather, pride, and family name?

Isn't it really all the same?

Fame and Fortune are but the Joker's Game...

When it's 110 degrees in the shade.
