lyrics

Set fire to the piano
And play like you're insane
Don't even think of stopping 'till your fingers feel the strain

Keep hammering those keys
And marking out the beat
You play it so damn quickly you no longer feel the heat

(Chorus:)

'Cos when your body crumbles
And your mind just don't seem right
And your woman done gone left you
It's the only way to fight
If you feed it gin and tears
You'll just make the flames rise higher
People gather round the all-consuming fire

Everybody's queueing
For the flaming pianist
If he cannot use his fingers he'll just use his goddam fists

The temperature is rising
Do you think that it's the flames
Or could it be the music that's attracting all the dames?

(Chorus)

(Instrumental Break)

(Chorus)
