Fire In Your New Shoes

  • I like that outfit, the zipper's pinchin'
    But if you want it any tighter, we could cinch it
    Dress up leather, wear every colour
    I'm going Rococo with sequins in the summer

    So come
    Twirl your dresses around
    Lift your cotton socks on
    And turn your cameras on now for the fun

    While I light a fire in your new shoes
    If you should smile, look so surprised
    While I light a fire in your new shoes
    Look out that your soles don't burn to the floor

    I light the fire
    I light the fire

    Buttons are busted, we're decorated
    We make an ornament with gold and silver plating
    So what's the latest, we raise a fever
    We're just all red inside, that's all to see here

    Yeah, we're red inside, we're all red inside
    And the leg bone's connected to the one in the thigh
    We are red inside, we're all red inside
    And the leg bone's connected to the one in the thigh

    So come oh, oh, oh
    Twirl your dresses around uh, uh, uh
    Lift your cotton socks, sock, sock, sock, sock
    Turn your cameras oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

    While I light a fire in your new shoes
    If you should smile, look so surprised
    While I light a fire in your new shoes
    Look out that your soles don't burn to the floor

    While I light a fire in your new shoes
    If you should smile, look so surprised
    While I light a fire in your new shoes
    Look out that your soles don't burn to the floor

    While I light a fire
    I light a fire Writer/s: FINN BJARNSON, MARK PHILLIPS, RYAN RADDON, MARTINA SORBARA
