Burnin Down

by Patty Larkin

Get the baby and the bath water pack it up
Get the truck in the backyard and back it up
It's burnin down
Tie it off with a little piece of clothes line
Pile it up now if something falls well never mind
It's burnin down
Run along the river get your brother and your sister
Hurry up now and don't stop for nothing mister
Burnin down
Dear mother it's moving below the ridge
Dear father it's coming across the bridge
Its burnin down
Dust to dust and ashes to ashes
Hear the road feel the heat that's what fast is
It's burnin down
Tires scream children quiet and wild eyed
Can't get far enough away from the mountain side
It's burnin down
Dear mother it's moving below the ridge
Dear father it's coming across the bridge
It's burnin down
Burnin down
