Tommy James & The Shondells – Ball Of Fire lyrics

Scarlet hoverin' my head; pretty and red, pretty and red.
Flowers dyin' in their bed. Oh yeah.
Why is ev'ryone cryin'? Mmmm.
Look up, children, look and see: shinin' down on you and me, yeah.
Chorus: And the ball of fire in the sky, yeah,
Keeps a-watchin' over you and I way up high.
And the ball of fire in the sky, c'mon,
Keeps a-watchin' over you and I way up high.

And now the towers are fallin'; tumblin' down, tumblin' down.
Oh, can't you hear the angels callin'? Oh yeah.
Listen, now. Shinin' through eternity.
As it was, so it shall be, yeah.
