lyrics

I live next to the Fire Station
Hey Ho ringing in my ears
People stop burning your places to cinders
Let me get some peace

I don’t speak French, I don’t speak nothing
Just want to find me some peace
Don’t want to speak of the rights or wrongs
Of sitting in another man’s seat

Some folks wear suits on Sundays
I wear suits all week long
Don’t seem to matter where you go
People sing the same damn song

Some folks are full of grace
Don’t make much difference to me
You can swing your prayer books, fiddle your beads
Just don’t do it round here

I live next to the Fire Station
Hey Ho ringing in my ears
People stop burning your places to cinders
Let me get some peace
