​Burn The House Down

This song is by Jonas.

I met a sketchy little woman
And she walked a crooked line
She took a page from the bible
Turnin' water into wine
She talked about a spirit
Said she had a crystal ball
Even spoke with the deviel
Made a telephone call
With her hocus pokus oil and brews

Everything she ID was frontpage news
The people all came on a Saturday night
We'll run her outa town
And if she puts up a fight
Then we'll burn the house down

Burn the house down
Burn the house down
And throw away the key

So the bishop takes his queen
Across a checkboard square
Took a rose from her garden
And a lock from her hair

He talked some mumbo jumbo
'Bout the moon and stars
Said he's walkin' on the water
When he's drivin' his car
Another Saturday night and the newspapers read
The holyman died he was smokin' in bed

Burn the house down
Burn the house down
And throw away the key
Burn the house down
Burn it into the ground
And throw away the key

So when you're sleepin' all alone
And there's a knock on your door
And you're on your knees prayin'
'Cause you're like is a war
Say a hail mary as runnin' out a town
And thank the lord you're living
As they burn your house down

Burn the house down
Burn the house down, down, down
And throw away the key
Burn the house down
Burn it to the ground
And throw away the key
