Song Description

"Secret weapons include bassline bounce, Buzzcocky nasality, and astute wit: one song about an ex-girlfriend whose kettle almost burns her house down while she sings "Bye Bye Love" in the shower..." from a review by THE VILLAGE VOICE - Chuck Eddy - 2004

Lyrics

Don?t Burn Your House Down


How many times have I saved you, girl, from incendiary pain?
Can you count the number of pots that you burned upon your range?
You were upstairs in the shower; I saw the steam from the kettle spout
You were singing me ?Bye Bye Love? while the water was running out

So don?t burn your house down while I?m away
Don?t burn your house down
I don?t want it to end this way

You always complain when I come to see you late at night
You?re half asleep but you still keep on your $20 Halogen light
For hours its wasting power collecting and drying out bugs
To really light up your ceiling or fall over and ignite your rugs

So don?t burn your house down
while I?m away
Don?t burn your house down
I don?t want it to end this way

You?ve got to help me girl
This is the one thing that we can save
So don?t burn your house down while I?m away

All the things you do to get me back are really dangerous
I might not? but I think you?re gonna miss the two of us
Well, let me take that back, ?cause you might not even think about me when I?m gone
In the company of the firemen you?re gonna meet on your front lawn

Don?t burn your house down while I?m away
Don?t burn your house down
I don?t want it to end this way

We just might work things out
so until then use your microwave
Don?t burn your house down while I?m away!
