Edison Recordings: Fire! Lyrics

Fire! (An "Alarming" Novelty) fox trot ( MP3 | Real Audio )
Performed by: Earl Oliver's Jazz Babies, Tom Howard
Composed by: Byron Gay & Richard Whiting
Edison Diamond Disc
Recording Date: 1926

Fire! Fire!
Fire! Fire!

I'm burning up, I'm burning up,
Fire! Fire! Fire! Fire! Fire! Fire!
Just learned the truth
Of flaming youth
Fire! Fire! Fire! Fire!
Turn the hose on me.

Out in the park, just after dark,
She leaned against my shoulder,
My poor heart began to smolder.
I'm all aflame,
And you're to blame.
Fire! Fire! Fire! Fire!
Turn the hose on me.
