"Fire In The Hole" as written by and Edward/van Halen Van Halen....
In a word to the wisdom tooth
To tell, or not the truth (yeah)
So open up and say ahh-men
Rinse cup, and spit again
Forked tongue in double speak
Pretty soon you just might
Spring a leak
Inhale before you begin
Your iron lung's a bag of wind

There's a fire in the hole
Fire in the hole
There's a fire in the hole (hey hey hey hey hey)
Fire

Sweet 'n' sour, filiblister
Faucet pouring, fresh 'n' bitter
Come on smile and say cheese
On a count of three
Ya got a mindful of decavities
Hey!

Chew your words, lest you choke
You better watch your mouth
Wash it out with soap. Yeah!
Tongue tied in a tangled web
Your bile inside better left unsaid

There's a fire in the hole
Fire in the hole (hey hey hey hey hey)
There's a fire in the hole (hey hey hey hey hey)
Fire!
Ah, shoot it!

Hey-hey-yeah!
Huh!
Yeah!
Hey-hey-yeah!

(hey hey hey hey hey)
There's a fire in the hole
Fire in the hole (hey hey hey hey hey)
There's a fire in the hole (hey hey hey hey hey)
Fire in the hole (hey hey hey hey hey)

There's a fire, fire, fire
A fire!

Rudder of ship, which sets the course
Does not the bit, bridle the horse
Great is the forest, set by a small flame
Like a tongue on fire, no one can tame

    General CommentI fucking love the intro to this song, it's among the best VH riffs ever. Unfortunately, the song is immediately ruined once Cherone starts wailing.
