And we're burnin' down the house

Here's your ticket, pack your bags, it's time for goin' overboard

Close enough but we're not too far, bet you're wonderin' where you are
Fight fire with fire

Burning down the house

All wet, and you might need a raincoat
Shake down, my dreams are walkin' in broad daylight
365 degrees 
And we're burnin' down the house

My house, out of the ordinary
That's right, I don't want to really hurt nobody
Some things sure sweep me off my feet
And we're burnin' down the house
