Fire Lyrics

now listen, baby

You don't care for me
I don'-a care about that
Gotta new fool, ha!
I like it like that

I have only one burning desire
Let me stand next to your fire
Let me stand next to your fire [Repeat 4 times]

    I think it is about smoking pot. Pretty simple, not going to go into detail.

    Let me stand next to your fire- I interpret fire as a woman’s sexual heat, passion and that he’s persuading her to have sex. The famous move over Rover line, I took to be a code for the woman’s dog performing cunnilingus and Jimmy telling the dog scram, he will take over!
