Hang Fire Lyrics

In the sweet old country where I come from
Nobody ever works
Yeah nothing gets done
We hang fire, we hang fire

You know marrying money is a full time job
I don't need the aggravation
I'm a lazy slob
I hang fire, I hang fire
Hang...

    I always thought it referred to smoking marijuana out of a pipe.... you hold the lighter upside down.... thus “hanging fire”

    No longer true when jobs are plentiful and able bodied kids sit around while senior citizens struggle to work.

    It means when you have little money and no job why not just use to have fun. When recessions hit those in the working class lose their jobs some hit rock bottom and go out have fun.

    Counterfeiting money - hang it up to dry.
