The Lyrics

Set the Knight on Fire

Fischer's kicking in the groove
The Russian's playing uninspired
But Karpov has some lighter fluid,
A conflagration's his desire.

Try to set his knights on fire,
Try to set his knights on fire,
Burn 'em up and then retire!

From Alkehine's older school
To Kasparov's computer mind
They teach the masters' greatest move:
Scorch the horse to ashen piles.

Try to set the knight on fire,
Try to set the knight on fire,
Burn it up and then retire,
Burn it up and then retire,
Burn it like a junkyard tire!
