The Lyrics

The word "fire" in this parody has one syllable. "'05" is pronounce "oh-five". And triple-0 (tri-pl-oh) is the emergency number in Australia. Enjoy!
Something's hot, is it me?
Is it you? Holy crap, you smell that? Something's burning, dude
Where there's smoke, there's fire, too
Something's cooked way too high
Which moron left something in the oven for too long a time
Ah, won't someone put out the fire

Well, the extinguisher's empty
Better run out quickly
Cause I think we burned down the house
We should've watched the potatoes
Busy playing Halo
Cause of that, we burned down the house

We should cheese it (better cheese it)
'Fore the whole house burns
Someone get their phone
And call triple-0
We should cheese it (better cheese it)
'Fore the whole house burns
No charge in my phone
Can't call triple-0

My friend Steve says to chill
He says "Well, that may just be the neighbour cooking on the grill"
He doesn't have one, you dill!
Then my friend Drew takes this in stride
Sips his Coke, says "Just relax the sprinklers will sort this in time" (time)
They haven't worked since '05

Well, I think that we are buggered
Hope insurance covers
This, I think we burned down the house
Will you two stop playing Slayer
There's time for that later
When the pros have put out the house

We should leg it (better leg it)
'Fore the whole place burns
You forgot your phones
Can't call triple-0
We should leg it (better leg it)
'Fore the whole place burns
Someone find a phone
And call triple-0

May think I'm being too antsy
And a total pansy
To think that we've burned down the house
Well, I tell you, Drew and Stevey
You can rest it easy
And you can burn down with the house

Then suddenly I remember
We keep cans of petrol
In the garage, get out the house!
Turn that game off, don't be lazy
I'm outside already
I'm begging you, get out the house

Across the street in a phone box
Dodging a burnt Xbox
"Get me Fire! I blew up my house!"
Song chosen because of Johnny English, the same reason I parodied "A Man For All Seasons"

Conq! This was great. 'Twas only after I sung along to this I caught your comments at the top. I didn't realise you were one of me (realise with an S is a giveaway)."dill', "buggered", "pansy", "petrol" - all made me feel right at home. Hang on! I AM at home :) Good work, great pacing.

This parody certainly doesn't deserve to get flamed.

I set the toaster on fire once. And tried to smother it with a bowl. Burned all my mom's Tupperware lids!

Anyway, I digress....nice job!

"dill", "buggered", "pansy", "petrol", "triple-0".... What? I knew what you were talking about but with all that slang I now realize what it's like for you to read parodies from us about Thanksgiving or 4th of July.

(Artistry Round 121 (Abba)) - Especially loved the sprinklers line and the Slayer line.

This is by far the slowest reaction in history to an impending fire. Were your buddies, er, too baked to notice they were getting baked?

Ah, the hazards of Halo. But an exploding house would add realism to the game. Excellent work.

"Something's cooked way too high" was along the many lines that had me itching my head. . .it was a funny concept. . .but not a favorite of mine by you

(Artistry) The idea itself made me laugh.... Er, not because they burned the house down though :s That would be sick
