Now I don't mean to be a stick in the dirt
    Am                     D
The world is changing only in reverse
    Am                          D         G

    C                       G
The world today in which we all endear
    Am               D
Has taken us about a thousand years
   Am                           D         G
To ghost ball all the things we had right here

Am             Em
Burn baby burn when you going to learn

The earth is getting dryer
    Am                 G
The flames are growing higher

Verse 3
   C                         G          
My clothes are dirty and the sky is grey

And I've not anything to wash my hair
        Am                            D     G
Because all the detergents are on the river bed
           C            Am G    
And it's a hell on earth

Verse 4
C                            G
Taken all your money so I'll tell you the facts
    Am                       D
You join everybody trying to live with the tax
       Am                          D        G
If you don't get down they try and call you back
            C            Am G C
'Cos it's a hell on earth

Chorus
Am             Em
Burn baby burn when you going to learn
     C                   Am   G
It's time to put out the fire so
Am             Em
Burn baby burn when you going to learn
    Am               D
The earth is getting dryer
    Am                 G
The flames are growing higher
