(sound of match striking)

Know that it would be untrue
Know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
I didn't set your house on fire

But it's just the way I am
Have to take it for a fact
Life can really burn you up
When you're a pyromaniac
So...

If you love somebody
Better set them on fire

I went to your house last night
Dad called me the human torch
Got a little pissed at him
So I burned down your front porch

Now I feel a little better
About throwin' gas on your dad
But you know it's hard to quit
And besides he started it

I just bought a brand new lighter
And I just can't wait to use it
With a can a' kerosene it's lots a' fun
You can't refuse it

Oily rags are special things
You know to me they're diamond rings
Maybe we can have some fun
Maybe we can burn someone
So...

If you love somebody
Better set them on fire

Know that it would be untrue
Know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
I didn't set your dad on fire

If you love somebody
Better set them on fire

If you love somebody
Why not set them on fire?

If you love somebody
Better set them on fire

If you love somebody
Why not set them on fire?
