Dynamite Charlie was a loser
Building bombs in his flat
Filled up his head with too many words
You know where that's at.
One day while he was working
He made a bad mistake.
He was playing with fire
Playing with fire, yeah,
Playing with fire
But it was too late.
Said he was playing with fire
Playing with fire
Playing with fire
But it was too late.
Double Head Danny was a heavy
He would try anything.
He thought he would take a good look at himself
Dropping some L.S.D.
When the doors were open
He knew he made a mistake.
Hey he was playing with fire, ha,
Playing with fire, yeah
Playing with fire
But it was too late.
I said he was playing with fire, huh uh,
Playing with fire, yeah
Playing with fire
But it was too late.
Alright come on play it one time!
Oh come on!
Yeah!
Acid Mary was a dealer,
She had a mission in life.
Soon as everybody was turned on
Everything would be alright.
When she sold speed to a narc girl,
She made a bad mistake.
Yeah she was playing with fire, ha!
Playing with fire, yeah
Playing with fire
But it was too late.
Said she was playing with fire, huh uh,
Playing with fire, yeah
Playing with fire
But it was too late.
I said she was playing with fire, huh uh,
Playing with fire, yeah
Playing with fire
But it was too late.
Alright, playing with fire, now now now
She was playing with fire, huh huh huh,
Said she was playing with fire, but it was too late...
