Get Started, Start a Fire

This song is by Graham Parker and appears…

The mona lisa's sister doesn't smile
She tried to pose but only for a while
Leonardo sent her home since then she has lived alone
With her few belongings and a copy of a painting of herself unhappy
She is going to burn it when she's ready

Get started, start a fire
Get started, start a fire
Get started, start a fire
Get started, start a fire

Marilyn was lying all alone with an empty bottle by the phone
Kennedy was not around she was cold when she was found
But she'd gone where the goddesses are sleeping
Where the molten tongues of flame are leaping
Or where the angel's hearts are beating

Get started, start a fire
Get started, start a fire
Get started, start a fire
Get started, start a fire

Joan of arc was burning at the stake somebody had made a big mistake
She had lit a cigarette in an airport where you get
All your fingers taken off for smoking.
Meanwhile up the road a factory's choking
The ones who killed her work there I'm not joking

Get started, start a fire
Get started, start a fire
Get started, start a fire
Get started, start a fire

Get started, start a fire
Get started, start a fire
Get started, start a fire
Get started, start a fire
