The Mona Lisa's sister doesn't smile
She tried to pose but only for a while
Leonardo sent her home
Since then she has lived alone
With her few belongings and a copy
Of a painting of herself unhappy
She is going to burn it when she's ready

Get started, start a fire
Get started, start a fire

Marilyn was lyin all alone
With an empty bottle by the phone
Kennedy was not around
She was cold when she was found
But she'd gone where the goddesses are sleeping
Where the molten tongues of flames are leaping
Or where the angel's hearts are beating

Get started, start a fire
Get started, start a fire
Get started, start a fire

Start a fire



Joan of Arc was burnin at the stake
Somebody had made a big mistake
She had lit a cigarette
In an aiport where you get
All your fingers taken off for smokin
Meanwhile up the road a factory's chokin
The ones who killed her work there I'm not jokin

Get started, start a fire
Get started, start a fire
Get started, start a fire
Get started, start a fire


Get started, start a fire
Get started, start a fire
Get started, start a fire
Get started, start a fire
