(Words by Van Halen)

In a word to the wisdom tooth
To tell, or not the truth (yeah)
So open up and say ahh-men
Rinse cup, and spit again

Forked tongue in double speak
Pretty soon you just might
Spring a leak
Inhale before you begin
Your iron lung's a bag of wind

There's a fire in the hole
Fire in the hole
There's a fire in the hole (hey hey hey hey hey)
Fire

Sweet 'n' sour, filiblister
Faucet pouring, fresh 'n' bitter
Come on smile and say cheese
On a count of three
Ya got a mindful of decavities
Hey!

Chew your words, lest you choke
You better watch your mouth
Wash it out with soap. Yeah!
Tongue tied in a tangled web
Your bile inside better left unsaid

There's a fire in the hole
Fire in the hole (hey hey hey hey hey)
There's a fire in the hole (hey hey hey hey hey)
Fire!
Ah, shoot it!

(Guitar Solo)

Hey-hey-yeah!
Huh!
Yeah!
Hey-hey-yeah!

(hey hey hey hey hey)
There's a fire in the hole
Fire in the hole (hey hey hey hey hey)
There's a fire in the hole (hey hey hey hey hey)
Fire in the hole (hey hey hey hey hey)

There's a fire, fire, fire
A fire!

Rudder of ship, which sets the course
Does not the bit, bridle the horse
Great is the forest, set by a small flame
Like a tongue on fire, no one can tame
