It's Been Burning for a While

Lingua: Inglese



Woke up this morning
Saw that smoke up in the sky
A crowd of people watching
Askin’ who and how and why.

Flames are rollin’ down the city
Rolling for a mile.
How’d it get so bad you ask?
It’s been burnin’ for a while.

You say it’s in the eye of the beholder
Well, I’ll just go and check—
No, it ain’t no chip up on my shoulder
That’s your boot up on my neck.

How’d these flames go far you ask
Now they’ve gone a thousand miles
I got a newsflash for ya—
They’ve been burning for a while.

It’s been burning for a while down here
Glad you stopped to see.
And ain’t no water gonna douse it down
Until you hear from me.

You say it’s in the eye of the beholder
Well, I’ll just go and check—
No, it ain’t no chip up on my shoulder
That’s your boot up on my neck.

It’s been burning for a while
It’s been burning for a while
Ain’t no water gonna douse it down
Until you hear from me.
