I was datin a lawyer with a genleman nature
Says "She ain't nothin like me"
There's fire and there's water
And all I can offer is a temperment that he don't need

So he's makin his rounds with a well-bred intent
Safe and out of harm
He can say what he likes, water is nice
But it's fire that keeps you warm

Maybe you're rough around the edges and stubborn to a fault
Maybe I'm just a little too blonde-headed, stiff-backboned and all
Maybe I'm passionate about being passionate
Say what you like boy, water is nice
But it's fire that keeps you warm

You know me, you know it's true
You can quote me if you want to

Maybe you're rough around the edges and stubborn to a fault
Maybe I'm just a little too blonde-headed, stiff-backboned and all
Maybe I'm passionate about being passionate
Say what you like boy, water is nice
But it's fire that keeps you warm

Say what you like it may all turn to ice
It's the fire that you're gonna want

I was datin a doctor with a gentleman nature
Says "She ain't nothin like me"
There's fire and there's water
And all I can offer is a temperment that he don't need
