Tom Jones & The Cardigans – Burning Down The House lyrics

Fightin' fire with fire

Watch out, you might get what you're after
Cool babies, strange but not a stranger
I'm an ordinary guy
Burning down the house

Hold tight
Wait till the party's over
Hold tight
We're in for nasty weather
There has got to be a way
Burning down the house

Here's your ticket pack your bags
Time for jumpin' overboard
The transportation is here

Close enough but not too far
Maybe you know where you are
Fightin' fire with fire

All wet, hey, you might need a raincoat
Shakedown dreams walking in broad daylight
Three hundred sixty five degrees
Burning down the house

It was once upon a place, sometimes I listen to myself
Gonna come in first place
People on their way to work, baby, what did you except
Gonna burst into flame

Fightin' fire with fire
Fightin' fire with fire
Burning down the house

My house's
Is out of the ordinary
That's right
Don't wanna to hurt nobody
Some things sure can sweep me off my feet
Burning down the house

Watch out, you might get what you're after
Cool babies, strange, but not a stranger
I'm an ordinary guy
Burning down the house
Three hundred sixty five degrees
Burning down the house

Fightin' fire with fire
(Fightin' fire with fire)
Gonna burst into flame
(Fightin' fire with fire)
Fightin' fire with fire
(Fightin' fire with fire)

Gonna burst into flame
(Burnin' down the house)
My house
(Burnin' down the house)

No visible means of support and you have not seen nothin' yet
(Burnin' down the house)
Everything's stuck together
(Burnin' down the house)
I don't know what you expect staring into your tv set
Fighting fire with fire

Burning down the house
Burning down the house
