Stop getting me off track.
I mean it, there's a problem here.
This time it is for real...
How can I make myself more clear?

I never say quite what I mean, and never mean quite what I say,
And how did that get out of me, and what the hell did I mean to
Say?

This time it is for real.
This is a real emergency.
This time I swear it is the truth...
This must be dealt with urgently!

I never say quite what I mean, and never mean quite what I say,
And how did that get out of me, and what the hell did I mean to
Say?

There's a fire. There's a fire.

I really mean it now,
This time I swear I have not lied.
This isn't like the last time...
I swear to God I have not lied!

I never say quite what I mean, and never mean quite what I say,
And how did that get out of me, and what the hell did I mean to
Say?

There's a fire. There's a fire.
