I'm feelin' last night this mornin' A train wreck pain in my head But when I reach for the hair of the dog in the drawer Found a dusty old Bible instead Thought I ain't been to service since my granddaddy passed Finish my cigarette out there on the front steps And then slipped in the back by myself
You bring on the fire and brimstone Tell me I'm goin' to Hell Yeah, which one of you will throw the first stone? Well, I guess I'll see you there You bring on the fire
And then I heard the reverend He said, "Turn and shake your neighbor's hand" One by one saw them all turn around just to stare back at me Like the wretch that I am
You bring on the fire and brimstone Tell me I'm goin' to Hell Yeah, which one of you will throw the first stone? I guess I'll see you there You bring on the fire You bring on the fire Bring it on
And out of spite I went down to the altar And almost all of them followed me there It turns out there's only one book and one cover (one cover) And they're all just glad I was there
And we prayed for grace and forgiveness About faith, hope, and love And when I make my way to Heaven Oh, I pray he'll say "well done"
You bring on the fire and brimstone Tell me I'm goin' to Hell Yeah, I know he died and rolled away the stone I guess I'll see him there You bring on the fire
(Mmhm) Bring it on Bring it on Bring it on You bring it on
There's a chance that when I get to Heaven Oh, He may not know me at all If that's the case, man, then I'll take my judgement Oh, but it won't be from y'all, no
Bring on the fire You bring on the fire Bring it on Yeah, bring it on Yeah, bring on the fire

The line in John Mellencamp's "Cherry Bomb" that sounds like "that's when a smoke was a smoke" is actually "that's when a sport was a sport," according to the published lyric. In that sense, "sport" is an endearment for someone of good nature.
