Fire In Dixie, Call The Firemen! !


News Flash!
Hold the Presses! !
There is a Fire - -
In Dixie! !

They are calling
For outside help -
All the World
Now knows - -

There is a Fire
In Dixie,
And its burning
Out of Control! !

His kiss
Was what started it -
And it set my mind
And body Aflame! !

His kiss - OH, that sweet kiss,
Was what started it,
And I just know,
I Shall never be the same! !

    Doesn't sound like the kind of fire you need Firemen for! Just throw that smoke detector out onto the lawn and have yourself a rip-roaring good time! -chuck (Report) Reply
