The Lyrics

another richie parody - nuff said
Richie went into first class, then someone gave him a match
Dan beard did not help him learn about fire safety
He starts fires with C4, machine guns and Pennzoil
He can't do anything without getting in trouble

I do remember the time, when he got cold in the night
And sometime put out the fire, so he decided to holler
It was 12:00 at night, it gave the adults a fright
They got pissed at him, soaked him and, tied him to an oak tree

RICH STARTED UP THE FIRE
HE STOLE MY BLUE - TIP MATCHES
AND LIT SOME BERRY PATCHES
RICH STARTED UP THE FIRE
HALF THE SITE'S BURNT DOWN NOW
BEAT HIM AND TAKE A BOW

During this summer, he brought glow - sticks
And thought they would make the fire look pretty
When Mr. McKewon found out
He got his huge umbrella out
And almost turned him into a bowl of chopped up herring fish

Slingshots are his only friends
So are paintballs guns and trends
He's lucky that we did not -
KICK HIS ASS YET!!!!!

RICH STARTED UP THE FIRE
HE STOLE MY BLUE - TIP MATCHES
AND LIT SOME BERRY PATCHES
RICH STARTED UP THE FIRE
HALF THE SITE'S BURNT DOWN NOW
BEAT HIM AND TAKE A BOW

He went into my patrol
Then I kicked him right back out
But near me he is a completely different person
'Cause he knows if he acts dumb near me
I'll beat the crap right out of him

His brother's a better scout
But his I.Q. we'll talk about
He's not bright in the head
And likes to make his face turn red
Rich does his hair like a loon
Everyone thinks he's a goon
And he once, threw a tennis ball
Into a furnace

RICH STARTED UP THE FIRE
HE STOLE MY BLUE - TIP MATCHES
AND LIT SOME BERRY PATCHES
RICH STARTED UP THE FIRE
HALF THE SITE'S BURNT DOWN NOW
BEAT HIM AND TAKE A BOW

Well my song's about to end
But I'll tell you my good friends
If you come across him
Do not
Think that
He's as strong
As a god
Tell him that he is psycho
And that you'll kick him right back home
But before, I will go
I'll also say that he's real small
And when you are done with him
You will then be rewarded
I AM HEADING OUT THE DOOR
I WILL NOT SAY ANYMORE!!!!!!!!!

RICH STARTED UP THE FIRE
HE STOLE MY BLUE - TIP MATCHES
AND LIT SOME BERRY PATCHES
RICH STARTED UP THE FIRE
BUT WHEN WE'VE KICKED HIM OUT
WILL THESE FLAMES GO OUT, GO OUT, GO OUT, GO OUT, GO OUT


(2x) RICH STARTED UP THE FIRE
HE STOLE MY BLUE - TIP MATCHES
AND LIT SOME BERRY PATCHES
RICH STARTED UP THE FIRE
HALF THE SITE'S BURNT DOWN NOW
BEAT HIM AND TAKE A BOW
