"Baby's On Fire" as written by and Brian Eno....
Baby's on fire
Better throw her in the water
Look at her laughing
Like a heifer to the slaughter

Baby's on fire
And all the laughing boys are bitching
Waiting for photos
Oh the plot is so bewitching

Rescuers row row
Do your best to change the subject
Blow the wind blow blow
Lend some assistance to the object

Photographers snip snap
Take your time she's only burning
This kind of experience
Is necessary for her learning

If you'll be my flotsam
I could be half the man I used to
They said you were hot stuff
And that's what baby's been reduced to

Juanita and Juan
Very clever with maracas
Making their fortunes
Selling secondhand tobaccoes

Juan dances at Chico's
And when the clients are evicted
He empties the ashtrays
And pockets all that he's collected

But baby's on fire
And all the instruments agree that
Her temperature's rising
But any idiot would know that

    General CommentGod got to love Velvet Goldmine! Jonathan Rhys Meyers is amazing(gorgeous) and although he doesn't have a very pretty voice you have to admit it's a lot nicer than many rich "muscians." This is a entrancing song! I'm glad I got the first comment.

    General CommentI actually like this version better than Brian Eno's. It just sounds..the way it's supposed to, i can't explain it. It may be due to the fact that i heard this version first.
