I'M ON FIRE

Heather Nova's cover version


Hey little boy is your mother home, did she go and leave you all alone
I got a bad desire, oh oh oh I'm on fire

Tell me now baby is she good to you, does she do to you the things I don't do
I can take you higher, oh oh oh I'm on fire
Oh oh oh I'm on fire

Sometimes it's like someone took a knife baby edgy and dull and put a six-inch valley through the middle of my soul
At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet and a freight train running through the middle of my head
Only you can cool my desire, oh oh oh I'm on fire
Oh oh oh I'm on fire
Oh oh oh I'm on fire

Uh-uuuuh...
Uh-uuuuh...
Uh-uuuuh...
Uh-uuuuh...
Uh-uuuuh...
Uh-uuuuh...
Uh-uuuuh...
