Burning Down The House Lyrics By Talking Heads

    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 ’til 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 bag it’s time for jumping overboard
    the transportation is here
    close enough but not too far maybe you know where you are
    fighting fire with fire ah

    all wet here you might need a raincoat
    shakedown dreams walking in broad daylight
    three hundred sixtyfive 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 say baby what did you expect
    gonna burst into flame ah


    burning down the house

    my house is out of the ordinary
    thats right don’t wanna hurt nobody
    some things sure can sweep me off my feet
    burning down the house

    no visible means of support and you have not seen nothing yet
    everything’s stuck together
    i don’t know what you expect staring into the tv set
    fighting fire with fire ah
