Lyrics Burning Down The House

Ah, watch out, you might get what you're after
Cool baby 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 a transportation is here
Close enough but not too far maybe you know where you are fightin' fire with fire
Ah, all wet, yeah you might need a raincoat
Shakedown, thieves walking in broad daylight
Three hundred sixty five degrees burning down the house
Ah, it was once upon a place sometimes I listen to myself gonna come in first place
People on their way to work and baby what did you expect gonna burst into flame
Burning down the house
My house is out of the ordinary
That's right don't want to hurt nobody
Somethings sure can sweep me off my feet burning down the house
No visible means of support and you have not seen nothing yet
Everything's stuck together
And I don't know what you expect staring into the TV set
Fighting fire with fire, ah
