I came 'round to your front door, your back door was locked  Pushed your button, rang your bell, you didn't hear me knock 
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

 Smoky eyes burning bright
 Innocence lost, satisfy my appetite  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
