I came 'round to your front door, your back door was locked
Pushed your button, rang your bell, you didn't hear me knock
Oh baby I saw your window open wide, so I crawled inside
I ran to the top floor, but you were on the ground
I was on my way up and you were going down

Fire in the basement
Burn me up, scream and shout
There's fire in the basement
Only you can put it out

This strange sensation that I'm going through
Sweet infatuation when I get next to you
I know what it takes to be a man, you understand
'Cause when the sparks start flying you'll never be the same
You know I'll hate to leave you girl but I'm so glad I came

Fire in the basement
Burn me up, scream and shout
Fire in the basement
Only you can put it out
Alright

Fire in the basement
Burn me up, scream and shout
Fire in the basement
Only you can put it out

Smoky eyes burning bright
Innocence lost, satisfy my appetite
Oh baby surrender to the flame, what's your name
Let's get down to business, how can you refuse
Give this boy a helping hand, come on light my fuse

Fire in the basement
Burn me up, scream and shout
Fire in the basement
Only you can put it out

Fire in the basement
Burn me up, scream and shout
Fire in the basement
Only you can put it out oh babe
"Hey you gotta match?"
