Drums along the beach at night keep pacing
Drums stop heart and start the rights of mating
What's it gonna be? (bonfire)
Is it him or me? (bonfire)
Keep throwing the wood on 'til one is gone

Bonfire
Flames reach higher
Drum beat crying
Ambers dying
Bonfire
Oh, bonfire

Hook and line and ever endless waiting
Blood and sin you pull away past fainting
Who's it gonna be? (bonfire)
A boy like him or me? (bonfire)
Keep beating the drums until one is gone

Bonfire
Bonfire
Bonfire
Oh, bonfire
There's two fit to be hers (bonfire)
But only one can serve (bonfire)
Bonfire
Oh, bonfire

Sweat and smoke and watch the ambers glow
My heart starts beating fast for now I know
She made up her mind like that
She dressed like a jungle cat
Now this jaguar queen will be my own

Bonfire
Flames reach higher
Drum beat crying
Ambers dying
Bonfire
Oh, bonfire
Bonfire
Oh, bonfire

Oh, bonfire
Ya ya, bonfire
Oh, bonfire

    General CommentThis seems to be a song about a mating ritual where a woman (dressed like a jungle cat) has to decide between one man or another around a bonfire. Calvin paints such a great picture of it.
