From the Album:            Speaking In Tongues  1983 (A)

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 bag:  time for jumpin' overboard
     The transportation is here
Close enough but not too far, Maybe you know where you are
     Fightin' fire with fire
All wet  hey you might need a raincoat
Shakedown  dreams walking in broad daylight
     Three hun-dred six-ty five de-grees
     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  baby what did you except
     Gonna burst into flame
     My house  S'out of the ordinary
     That's might  Don't want to 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 nuthin' yet
     Everything's stuck together
I don't know what you expect starring into the TV set
     Fighting fire with fire
