Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey

Look at the sky turnin' hell fire red
Somebody's house is burnin' down down, down down
Down, down, down.

Well I asked my friend, "Where is that black smoke comin' from?"
He just coughed and changed the subject and said, "Oh well, I think it might
snow some."
So I left him sippin' his tea and I jumped in my chariot
And rode off to see just why and who could it be this time.

Sisters and brothers, daddy,s mothers standin' 'round cryin'
When I reached the scene the flames were makin' a ghostly whine.
So I stood on my horse's back an' I screamed without a crack
I said, "Oh baby why'd you burn your brother's house down?"

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Look out the sky turnin' hell fire red, Lord
Somebody's house is burnin' down down, down down
Look out the sky turnin' hell fire red, Lord
Somebody's house is burnin' down down, down down down.

Well someone stepped from the crowd, he was nineteen miles high.
He shouts, "We're and disgusted so we paint red through the sky."
I said, "The truth is straight ahead so don't burn yourself instead,
Try to learn instead of burn, hear what I say."

So I finally rode away but I'll never forget that day
'Cause when I reached the valley I looked way down cross the way
A giant boat from space landed with eerie grace
And came and taken all the dead away.

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

What'd I say.
Look at the sky turnin' hell fire red, Lord
Somebody's house is burning down down, down down
Look at the sky turnin' hell fire red, Lord
Somebody's house is burning down down, down down
Look at the sky, look at the sky.

Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Oh baby.
