Fire Brigade

Cast your mind back ten years
To the girl who's next to me in school
If I put my hand upon her leg
She hit me with a rule
Though tomorrow won't be long
You're gonna have to play it cool

You'd be fascinated by her
She could set the place on fire

People run and get the fire brigade
Get the fire brigade
See the buildings start to really burn
People run and get the fire brigade
Get the fire brigade
If you jump you've got to wait your turn

Friends all seem to laugh
I fear I'm apt to make a compromise
Try to reassure myself
My head must need some exercise
Half past ten in the morning
She just took me by surprise

Should she set the place on fire
You'd be fascinated by her...


The lights across the street
Throw a rainbow in her hair
I'd love you all to meet her
I'll be there, I'll be there

Notice that my eyes have been
A mystic blaze since Saturday
Brings the feeling we might need
The fire engines yet again
Though tomorrow won't be long
You're gonna have to play it cool

You'd be fascinated by her
She could set the place on fire

Yep that's real music Gordie, real music. Roy Wood is one of a handful of musical geniuses. I can still listen to "Forever" and get goose bumps.
