George Strait – The Fireman Lyrics

[Chorus:]
Well they call me the fireman, that’s my name.
Making my rounds all over town, putting out old flames.
Well everybody’d like to have a what I got.
I can cool ’em down when they’re smold’ring hot.
I’m the fireman, that’s my name.

Last night they had a bad one a mile or two down the road.
Well my buddy walked out and left his woman burning out of control.
Well I was down there in about an hour or so.
With a little mouth to mouth she was ready to go.
I’m the fireman, that’s my name.

[Chorus]

Got a fire engine red – T – bird automobile.
In a minute or less I can be dressed fit to kill.
I work 24 on, 24 off.
When they get too hot, they just give me a call.
I’m the fireman, that’s my name.

[Chorus]

They call me the fireman, that’s my name.
