The Lyrics

this is about a devastating fire which swept through the glen!
Who lit the fire?
Oh flames spreading through bushes and trees,
Mighty fire, burning far and near,
Oh, who lit the fire?

Far it has burned, the black once was green,
spreads through the mountains and in between,
turning forrest into desert, the trees are on fire,
and the question will always be who lit the fire?

Who lit the fire?
Oh flames spreading through bushes and trees,
Mighty fire, burning far and near,
Oh, who lit the fire?

Sweeps through the village around half past ten,
brave were the efforts of the firefighting men,
Oh the Nights and the days they would never tire,
until they catch the arsonist who lit the big fire,

Who lit the fire?
Oh flames spreading through bushes and trees,
Mighty fire, burning far and near,
Oh, who lit the fire?

Awat went the sunshine,
And down came the rain,
houses gone possessions and memories only ashes remain,
A flickering ember grew higher and higher,
from a single flame became this great mighty fire

Who lit the fire?
Oh flames spreading through bushes and trees,
Mighty fire, burning far and near,
Oh, who lit the fire?

Who lit the fire?
Oh flames spreading through bushes and trees,
Mighty fire, burning far and near,
Oh, who lit the fire?

I see from your body of work that we have another Beatle specialist on this site. I'd be interested in swapping comments with you. Why the alias?

Nice parody. Pacing is a little off, but only in one or two places. Otherwise it's great!
