The Lyrics

burn baby, burn (okie infero)...
it comes down the smoky mountain, it'll singe our fat behinds
I yelled, "Okie! it's a wildfire!"
like whirlwind, burns at night
what a wicked wicked sight

Oh they say they need some water
or their trailers are all toast
from that big and smelly wildfire
burns it up, that's all
lose their beer, that hurts the most
I yelled , "Okie Wildfire!"
I yelled , "Okie Wildfire!"
I yelled , "Okie Wildfire!"

now that trailerous town supplanted
lord we knew it had to go
it's been a long time coming, it's clearing Tulsa now..
for six weeks in a row
it's coming for you now
it's a wildfire, and now everything goes..
I yelled , "Okie Wildfire!"
I yelled , "Okie Wildfire!"
I yelled , "Okie Wildfire!"

a big wildfire, we're gonna watch it
leaving molten ash behind
yeah the smoke is burning my eyes, but I don't mind
yelling "wildfire!"

Very clever use of the original song's title and key-word "wildfire", Malcolm --- I like parodies that keep as many of the original song's words as possible but still come across as clever and obvious parodies, like this. Happy New Year!

well, judging by the polar opposite votes, JD, someone else doesn't ..
