  • We, we don't have to worry bout nothing
    'Cause we got the fire, and we're burning one hell of a something
    They, they gonna see us from outer space, outer space
    Light it up, like we're the stars of the human race, human race

    When the lights turned down, they don't know what they heard
    Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
    We'll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky
    'Cause we got the fire, fire, fire, yeah we got the fire fire fire

    And we gonna let it burn burn burn burn
    We gonna let it burn burn burn burn
    Gonna let it burn burn burn burn
    We gonna let it burn burn burn burn

    When the lights turned down, they don't know what they heard
    Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
    We'll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky
    'Cause we got the fire, fire, fire, yeah we got the fire fire fire

    And we gonna let it burn (Burn)
    (Burn)

    We can light it up up up
    So they can't put it out out out
    We can light it up up up
    So they can't put it out out out
    We can light it up up up
    So they can't put it out out out
    We can light it up up up
    So they can't put it out out out

    When the lights turned down, they don't know what they heard
    Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
    We'll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky
    'Cause we got the fire, fire, fire, yeah we got the fire fire fire

    And we gonna let it burn burn burn burn
    We gonna let it burn burn burn burn
    Gonna let it burn burn burn burn
    We gonna let it burn burn burn burn

    And we gonna let it burn burn burn burn
    We gonna let it burn burn burn burn
    Gonna let it burn burn burn burn
    We gonna let it burn burn burn burn

    When the lights turned down, they don't know what they heard
    Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
    We'll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky
    'Cause we got the fire, fire, fire, yeah we got the fire fire fire

    And we gonna let it burn (Burn)
