Ever see that damn thing, that burned out shell
For a little while that trailer must a seemed like hell

If kerosene works why not gasoline
If kerosene works why not gasoline

If kerosene works why not gasoline

They hated that goddamn trailer so it burnt 'em up alive

In a pure perfect world that tells no lies,
Burn you down you try to...improvise
