"Fahrenheit 451" as written by Robert Newton Calvert and Dave Brock....
In Lexington they're going to burn
The Library of Congress for charity
Round it's funeral pyre the flames will churn
As night and winter's darkness spurn

And threaten with their clarity
See the flames they're burning up
Burning so bright, Fahrenheit
Fahrenheit 451 Fahrenheit 451

The fun has just begun, Fahrenheit 451
Oh see the pages all catching fire
The building shimmering now
It was like this when witches reared

Against the stake, we stood and peered
At such Alladin's caves of air
Oh I wish you could have seen us there
Spreading all around that funeral pyre

Watching the flames burn higher and higher
Fahrenheit 451, Fahrenheit 451
The fun has just begun, Fahrenheit 451
Fahrenheit 451, Fahrenheit 451

The burning has just begun
It's like a mushroom cloud on a sun
Fahrenheit 451
The fire's fierce theatre draws herds of folk

All willing to be hypnotised
Anemones of flames and smoke
Enchant us so we gladly choke
Fahrenheit 451, Fahrenheit 451
The fun has just begun, Fahrenheit 451

    General CommentInspired by Ray Bradbury's novel of the same name. In the future firemen are employed to burn books, because books cause unhappiness, but one day a fireman picks up a book and reads it... It's a classic novel.
