Children play with matches start a fire(x2),
Don't ever do what you're told,
The old are just old,
Children play with matches start a fire.

Children play with fire, tend a blaze(x2),
You know where he keeps his drinks
And lots of poisons under the sink,
children play with fire, tend a blaze.

(Chorus)
The world is dry and brittle and dead,
It'll go up in a flash.
If we mix it all together, oh what a colorful blast!

Only shout when spoken to,
Curse your way through church and school,
And mess around with father's power tools.(x2)

Children play beyond the "Keep Out" signs(x2),
and if the owners send you home,
it's bottles, rocks, and stones,
children play beyond the "Keep Out" signs,

Chorus

children lead us to the lake of fire FIRE(x2),
And as we drive down into the flames,
Maybe I'll let you hold the reigns,
Children lead us to the lake of fire(x2),

Children play with matches, start a fire(x2)
Just a little gasoline and watch the people scream... Children play with matches start a fire.
