The Lyrics

Flames (flames) make a barn become toasted.
Flames (flames) when they’re blue, make a hot show.
Flames (flames) make things show up with a hot glow
Flames (flames).

Flames are my domain, but some folks’ bane—
those burnings make them wish for rain (rain).
Flames (flames).

Flames (flames) burning bright shatter a window.
Flames (flames), an incendiary harrow.
Flames (flames) quickly scorch a field of yarrow.
Flames (flames).

Flames—fire; these pyres can cause much ire
and cause some dire results from a fire.
Flames (flames).

Should give it a rest; could, but see,
there’s nothing like a blaze.
Shouldn’t be setting things ablaze.
I think it’s just a phase.

They tear things asunder when they scorch and burn—
flames, flames, flames, flames.
The goal ain’t to plunder, but brulé like a Yule.
Flames (flames).

Flame burning away. Chilly? No way!
Whatcha gonna blaze next and raze? (Flames)
Flames, flames, flames, flames………………..
That’s my game: flames.
