The Lyrics

Baby, I'm ablaze! Could you help put out the fire?!
Baby, I'm ablaze, like a torched marshmallow.
Baby, I'm ablaze, the situation's getting dire,
I've become a pyre
Baby, I'm ablaze
I'd scream, but I'm a parched fellow.

Baby, a firebrand is what I politically am,
But now, I'm literally burning--
I'll light your candle with my right hand.
Baby, please don't stand
Around; pretend you're a firewoman
And then extinguish me.
As it is, I am getting overtanned.
[Repeat after fiery guitar solo]

Baby, you're unfazed by the fact that I'm on fire;
You say it's a phase that I need to get through.
Baby, I'm amazed when you say, "Let's sing a song
Of the campfire genre."
When this blaze is out, without doubt on fire I'll set you.

When this song came out, Paul had played all the parts. It was only later he found his Wings. (Yeah, I know- what a nitpick, but it's only because you're usually so accurate!)

funny to think someone could be on fire and take the time to sing a number...5s

Thanks, Alvin, Rick--to me, McCartney post-Beatles is mainly lame pop, a big letdown after his work with the Fab Four. So my familiarity with PM, PB, with and without wings is limited to the tunes I remember hearing and mostly not liking.

To paraphrase Sir Paul from "Live And Let Die" ....

What does it matter to ya?
Paul McCartney slobbered goofy pap he knew would sell
And JB spoofed that goofy doofus well !

For a moment, I thought this was about Darth Vader. Oops, is that a spoiler?

Great OS and parody of same...5s
Stuart McArthur - May 26, 2005 - Report this comment
great job, John - and this is Paul's best non-Beatles OS (although, significantly, from his first non-Beatles album, when traces of the magic were still in his bloodstream) - 555
