Comb your hair and paint and powder,
You act proud and I'll act prouder,
You sing loud and I'll sing louder,
Tonight we're settin' the woods on fire,

You're my gal and I'm your feller,
Dress up in your frock of yeller,
I'll look swell, but you'll look sweller,
Settin' the woods on fire.

We'll take in all the honkey tonks,
Tonight we're havin' fun;
We'll show the folks a brand new dance,
That never has been done,

I don't care who thinks we're silly,
You be Daffy and I'll be Dilly,
We'll order up two bowls of chili,
Settin' the woods on fire.

--- Instrumental ---

I'll gas up my hot rod stoker,
We'll get hotter than a poker,
You'll be broke, but I'll be broker,
Tonight, we're settin' the woods on fire,

We'll set close to one another,
Up one street and down the other,
We'll have a time, oh brother,
Settin' the woods on fire.

We'll put aside a little time,
To fix a flat or two;
My tires and tubes are doing fine,
But the air is showin' through,

You clap hands and I'll start bowin',
We'll do all the law's allowin',
Tomorrow I'll be right back plowin',
Settin the woods on fire...
