"Play With Fire" as written by Nanker (a Phelge, K and A Mick Jagger)....
Well, you've got your diamonds and you've got your pretty clothes
And the chauffeur drives your car
You let everybody know
But don't play with me, 'cause you're playing with fire

Your mother she's an heiress, owns a block in Saint John's Wood
And your father'd be there with her
If he only could
But don't play with me, 'cause you're playing with fire

Your old man took her diamonds and tiaras by the score
Now she gets her kicks in Stepney
Not in Knightsbridge anymore
So don't play with me, 'cause you're playing with fire

Now you've got some diamonds and you will have some others
But you'd better watch your step, girl
Or start living with your mother
So don't play with me, 'cause you're playing with fire
So don't play with me, 'cause you're playing with fire

    General CommentHer mother was a goldigger so her father got rid of her and took everything away from her. She's just like her mother and the singer of the song is warning her that he's not going to be taken for a fool, except the way it's sung kinda makes me think he'd do more to her than take away her money if she messes with him.

    General CommentYeah, or he's like some poor guy, who is sorta a rebel, and knows he'll never have a chance with a rich girl. She shouldn't even try, because he's labeled a bad seed, and well....that's just on way...maybe a little of both.

    General Commenti always envision a psychopath in vietnam with a combat flamethrower torching some trees in the jungle when i hear this song. i think it was from a 'hunter' episode. anyhow, some rich girl is using her aristocratic clout to push people around with her nose up in the air. but one tormented soul knows that he has seen horrors that she cannot even begin to fathom. to know the future, to see its paths stream out into the infinite. if she even dares to patronize this man, there will be hell to pay 'cause you're playing with fire.'
