Watch out, you might get what you're after
Cool baby, you're strange but not a stranger
I'm an ordinary girl 
And I'm burnin' down the house

Hold tight, wait till this party's over
Hold tight, well we're gonna be in for some nasty weather
There has got to be a way 
And we're burnin' down the house

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