You'd better grease up, I'm coming back
You're going to catch fire, pyromaniac
You'd better shape up, you'd better get set
Going to burn up in the smoke of a jet

Sparks will fly when I finally get myself
Back on you, baby

Ooh, you're going to find out
Hey, I'm going to scream and shout
We're piercing this drought
Sparks will fly, yeah

Sparks will fly

I'm going to stand back, the flames are high
Better get help, can't stop the fire
Bell's going to ring, hear the alarms
Better tell the fire chief to quit playing cards

Ooh, I want to step on the gas
I want to get there real fast
I want to fuck your sweet ass

Sparks will fly
Sharks will cry

Had a good sniff around
All my old hunting grounds
But I have never found
A woman so hot

My fingers are crossed
Hey, the time that we lost
Hey, I'm in total chaos
And sparks will fly

Hey yeah
Sparks will fly
Yeah, come on
Back on you, baby
Sparks will fly
Come on...
Hey yeah
