He's dating a lawyer with a gentle nature.
Says she ain't nothing like me.
And there's fire and there's water and all I can offer.
Is a temperament that he don't need.
Well he's making his rounds with the well bred in town.
Safe and out of harm.
Well he can say what he likes water is nice.
But it's fire that keeps you warm.
Maybe I'm rough around the edges.
And stubborn to a fault.
Maybe I'm just a little too hard headed.
Stiff backbone and all.
Maybe I'm passionate about being passionate.
Say what you like boy water is nice.
But it's the fire that keeps you warm.
Well if you know me you know it's true.
And you can quote me if you want to.
