The Lyrics

Part of my "Do What You Wanna Do" self-challenge. A guy feels like setting fire to things. This is his friend's reaction. Enjoy!
Buddy, you shouldn't set things alight
Just because you seem to find
That they're flammable, flammable, they're flammable-ble
Bad enough if your flames were slight
You can see the flames for miles
Far too flammable, flammable, too flammable-ble
Cut it out

So give all your matches to me
Just because you can, it doesn't mean
You should set my best sneakers a-alight, du-ude (eh)
I know that man's a prick, but geez
Don't set his car on fi-ire, please
Cause it isn't nice and it's a-a crime, du-ude

Yeah, think your schtick over, cut it out, please
Cause I am runnin' out of money
Coverin' damage from your sprees
Court fines and other wastes of green
You're too enthused by hearin' the sound
Of flames all 'round and ash on the ground
And I'm sure that you cannot breath the smo-oke
Oh

Buddy, you've always a match to strike
When you see a thing and find
That it's flammable, flammable, it's flammable-ble
Burnt things at some construction site
Set the project back a while
Way too flammable, flammable, too flammable-ble
Stop it now

Wouldn't be mad if it was once
But for you, one blaze just ain't enough
This might seem rude, but you're crazy, du-u-ude (eh)
Flames might look cool when burnin' up
But just because it's flammable
Folks will still mind if it's a-alight, du-ude

Yeah, whether you're burnin' the bakery
Or some creepy bastard's dentistry
Not the right word for that, but please
Just put away the gasoline
I see you smile when spreadin' it 'round
Wraps right around your face like a clown
Sorry, I'm still failin' to see the jo-oke
Oh-oh

Buddy, keep the damn matches inside
Please don't set the bar alight
Cause it's flammable, flammable, it's flammable-ble
It's far too unsafe and besides
The bartender's pretty riled
Since he's flammable, flammable, he's flammable-ble
Cut it out

Easy to light, li-li-light
Still shouldn't try, try-try-try
You will be tried, tri-tri-tried
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Then you'll be fined, fi-fi-fined (big-big-big fine)
Or worse, your hide, hi-hi-hide (your stupid hi-ide)
A cell, inside, si-si-side
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Yo-o-o
Whoa-oa-oa-oa
Whoa-oa-oa-oa-oa
Might be flammable, flammable, it's flammable-ble
Sure is flammable (yeah-eah-eah), flammable (yeah-eah-eah), it's flammable-ble (yeah-eah-eah)

Ow
Buddy, if you're so flame-happy, why
Don't you set the town alight?
Since it's flammable (eh), flammable (oh), it's flammable-ble (oh-oh)
Oh crap, that mad look in your eye
I gave you ideas, why? (oh why-y)
Town's too flammable (eh), flammable (eh), too flammable-ble (ooh-ooh)
Come back now

I can't deny, -ny-ny-ny
You love to light, li-li-light (eh-eh-eh-eh-eh)
Whatev's nearby, by-by-by
Yeah (eh), yeah (eh), yeah
Flame's climbin' high, high-high-high (they're climbin' hi-i-igh)
I'm gonna dial, di-di-dial (my fault, I'll dial)
Cops, medics, fire, fi-fi-fire
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Why the hell was this Maroon 5's big single from V? I mean, Maps was kinda just existed, but It Was Always You is one of my fave songs of theirs, and while Animals isn't bad musically (apart from that ear-splitting chorus opening...also the song opening, never start your Maroon 5 song with Adam Levine in the high octaves) it's kinda sorta really rape-y. Like, it's Blurred Lines rape-y. It says something when Blaydeman can parody this song to be about literal cannibals and it isn't nearly as creepy!
