(Who got a match?)


Watch out, you might get what you’re after
Cool babies, strange but not a stranger
I’m an ordinary guy…Burning down the house

Hold tight, wait till the party’s over
Hold tight, we’re in for nasty weather
There has got to be a way…Burning down the house

Here’s your ticket pack your bags: time for jumpin’ overboard
The transportation is here
Close enough but not too far, maybe you know where you are
Fightin’ fire with fire, hah

All wet, hey you might need a raincoat
Shakedown, dreams walking in broad daylight
Three hundred sixty five degrees…Burning down the house

It was once upon a place sometimes I listen to myself
Gonna come in first place
People on their way to work, say baby what did you except?
Gonna burst into flame, go and hit!

My house, s’out of the ordinary, that’s right, don’t wanna hurt nobody
Some things sure can sweep me off my feet…Burning down the house

No visible means of support and you have not seen nothin’ yet
Everything’s stuck together
I don’t know what you expect starring into the TV set
Fighting fire with fire, hah


Burning Down The House…

Burning Down The House…
