(Dan Penn - Johnny Christopher)

Children be careful when playing with matches
Everything's dry and ready to burn, Lord, Lord
The neighbors are cooking out in the backyard
Just two doors down ain't nobody home, (they're all busy.)

Building fires, strong desires
We've got to be careful there's too many people
Just down the street building fires.

Now smoking in bed can sure burn your house down
Specially if you're there with somebody's wife
Temptation knocks and most people answers
Just neighborly lovers unsatisfied.

Building fires, strong desires
We've got to be careful there's too many people
Just down the street building fires.

One, two, three, stop it's time to change partners
You go get your good thing and I'll go get mine
Temptation knocks and most people answers
Just neighborly lovers yearning for more and more.

Building fires, strong desires
We've got to be careful there's too many people
Just down the street building fires.

We've got to be careful there's too many people
Just down the street building fires...
This song is from the album "Billy Boy and Mary Lou (w. Mary Lou Turner) [MCA]".
