  • Wound up, can't sleep, can't do anything right, little honey,
    Oh, since I set my eyes on you
    I tell you the truth
    T-t-t-twistin' like a flame in a slow dance, baby
    You're driving me crazy
    Come on, little honey, come on now

    Fire, smoke she is a rising
    Fire, yeah smoke on the horizon
    Fire, smoke she is a rising
    Fire, oh smoke stack lightning, smoke stack lightning

    Well, shake it up, you're to blame, got me swayin' little honey
    My heart's a ball of burnin' flame
    Oh, yes it is
    Prancing like a cat on a hot tin shack,
    Lord, have mercy come on little sister, come on and shake it

    Fire, smoke she is a rising
    Fire, oh smoke on the horizon
    Fire, smoke she is a rising
    Fire, oh smoke stack lightning baby

    I was thinking what I've been missing
    I'll tell you truthfully, well
    She's coming close now
    Oh, I can feel her

    She's getting close to me
    And I never, yeah
    Fire, smoke, she is a rising
    Fire, oh smoke on the horizon
    Fire smoke, she is a a risin', risin', risin' fire
    Smokestack lightnin'

    Aj-j-j, burnin' out
    And shake it, baby
    Come on and burn it

    I say, send down fire to me
    Say, send down fire to me, say, send down fire to me, yeah

    Fire woman, you're to blame
    Fire woman, you're to blame
    Fire woman, you're to blame
    Fire woman, you're to blame Writer/s: IAN ROBERT ASTBURY, WILLIAM DUFFY, WILLIAM HENRY DUFFY

  • Seleniuxmiux Rucobo from Fresno, CaJust love it!!!
  • Chris from Germany Actually THE CULT had 3 RIAA Certified Albums in the USA
    their debut was GOLD then they had two other albums which were PLATINUM certified

    that is remarkable for a band without any Top 40 Hits. FIRE WOMAN was#46 in the US Hot 100. Their song CIAO EDIE reached barely the Hot 100.
