"Let It Burn" as written by Keith D. Sweat, Gerald Mccrary, Edward Theodore Riley, Paul Lewis, Carlton Jr. Mahone and Jonathan H. Smith....
There was a house of sin.
I walked in, unpacked my bags
And jumped right in

[Chorus]
Let it burn (burn burn)
The city's on fire tonight.
Well let it burn (burn burn)
The squats on fire tonight.

Spent a week in parish jail.
Don't pay no rent, ain't got no bail.

[Chorus]
Let it burn (burn burn)
The city's on fire tonight.
Well let it burn (burn burn)
The squats on fire tonight.

Drink all night, sleep all day.
Work no job and get no pay.

Let it burn (burn burn)
The city's on fire tonight.
Well let it burn (burn burn)
The boys are out tonight.

[Outro]
Well let it burn (burn burn let it burn)
Well let it burn (burn burn yeah yeah yeah let it burn)
Well let it burn (burn burn let it burn)
Well let it burn burn

Don't trust us

[Outro]
Well let it burn (burn burn let it burn)
Well let it burn (burn burn yeah yeah yeah let it burn)
Well let it burn (burn burn let it burn)
Well let it burn burn

Eating rat poison.
Drinking gasoline.
Trying to kill myself.
Down to New Orleans.
Face down in the gutter.
Pass me another.
Revolution is hard
Work my brother.

Well let it burn
Let it burn (let it burn)
The city's on fire tonight.

[Outro]
Well let it burn (burn burn let it burn)
Well let it burn (burn burn yeah yeah yeah let it burn)
Well let it burn (burn burn let it burn)
Well let it burn burn
