"Brooklyn Is Burning" as written by Daryl Palumbo and Dan Nakamura....
You strangle people with a pissing stare.
I can't believe I made it.
The way you operate is so severe,
So severe. I hate it.

You strangle people with a sneering grin.
I can't believe I made it.
Brooklyn is burning down the discotheque, discotheque.
Let's shake it.

I feel the fire tonight.
I hear, I hear the people cry.
I see all the people laugh
I got, I got what the people want.

You send a message in the atmosphere
And everyone starts running.
The way you operate is so severe
So severe, so cunning.

You send a message in your beady stare
And everyone starts running.
Brooklyn is burning in the fire's side
Fire's side.
We're dancing.

I feel the fire tonight.
I hear, I hear the people cry.
I see all the people laugh.
I got, I got what the people want.

You strangle people with a pissing stare.
I can't believe I made it.
The way you operate is so severe, so severe.
I hate it.

You strangle people with a sneering grin.
I can't believe I made it.
Brooklyn is burning down the discotheque.
Let's shake it.

I feel like fire tonight.
I hear, I hear the people cry.
I see all the people laugh
I got, I got what the people want.
I got, I got what the people want.

    General CommentThis reminds me of this girl who is an utter and complete bitch.. she is known as a bitch in our school. She hates me, I hate her. She's out to make people feel like shit, scare/intimidate them and always gets what she wants.

    To me, this song has her name written all over it.
    Oh and it's just fucking awesome cause it makes me want to dance like super smooth and well, that's just awesome.
