"I Don't Want to Set the World On Fire" as written by Bennie Benjamin, Eddie Durham, Sol Marcus, Eddie Seiler and Eddie Seiler....
I don't want to set the world on fire
I just want to start
A flame in your heart
In my heart I have but one desire
And that one is you
No other will do

I've lost all ambition for worldly acclaim
I just want to be the one you love
And with your admission that you feel the same
I'll have reached the goal I'm dreaming of

Believe me!
I don't want to set the world on fire
I just want to start
A flame in your heart
