Watch out, you might get what you're after
Cool baby, you're strange but not a stranger

I'm an ordinary girl
And I'm burnin' down the house

Hold tight, wait till this party's over
Hold tight, well we're gonna be in for some nasty weather

There has got to be a way
And we're burnin' down the house

Here's your ticket, pack your bags
It's time for jumpin' overboard
Transportation is here

Close enough but I'm not too far
Bet you're wonderin' where you are
Fight fire with fire of love

Burnin' down the house

All wet, and you might need a raincoat
Shake down, my dreams are walkin' in broad daylight

Three hundred sixty-five degrees
And we're burnin' down the house, hah

My house, out of the ordinary
That's right, I don't wanna really hurt nobody

Some things sure sweep me off my feet
And we're burnin' down the house

Songwriters
BYRNE, DAVID / WEYMOUTH, TINA / FRANTZ, CHRIS / HARRISON, JERRY
