Fire it up, fire it up
When we finally turn it over
Make a beeline towards the boat or
Have a drink, you've had enough

Fire it up, fire it up
If you need some conversation
Bring a magazine to read around
Our broke down transportation

Fire it up
Is there enough?
Is there enough?
Is there enough?

Fire it up, fire it up
When we fine the perfect water
We'll hang out on the shore
Just long enough to leave our clothes there

Fine enough, fine enough
Oh, we ate all of the oranges
Off the navels of our lovers
Grabbed a book and read the cover

It honestly was beautifully done
Like trying to hide the daylight from the sun
But even if we had been sure enough, it's true, we really didn't know
Even if we knew which way to head, but, still, we probably wouldn't go

Fire it up, fire it up
We pushed off, we're rolling boulders
Crashing down the mirrored stairways
To a blast basement canaries

Fire it up, fire it up
When we fix the carburetor
Then we'll push off once again
In an hour or so later

It honestly was beautifully bold
Like trying to save an ice cube from the cold
But even if we had been sure enough, it's true, we really didn't know
Even if we knew which way to head, but, still, we probably wouldn't go

Well we always
Well we always
Had it all
Had it all
Had it all
Well we always
Well we always
Had it all
Had it all
Had it all
Well we always
Well we always
Had it all
Had it all
Had it all
