​The Bar's on Fire

This song is by The Bottle Rockets and appears on the album Brand New Year (1999).

Last Thursday night in Pittsburgh PA
We played a small bar called the Next Decade
During our show a riot broke out
And from the back of the bar, I heard someone shout
Oh my god the bar's on fire
Someone save the beer

As the fire spread, it was getting warm
We were right in the middle of a five alarm

The room was filled with so much smoke
I could barely hear what someone choked
Oh my god the bar's on fire
Someone save the beer

Outside the club there was quite a scene
With lots of flashing lights and loud sirens
And as the firemen ran into the blazing hell
I thought I heard one of them yell
Oh my god the bar's on fire
Someone save the beer

Another minute in there and we'd cremiate
But as I ran for my life I did hesitate
'Cause there was one thing on my mind
That was to never leave a drink behind
Oh my god the bar's on fire
Someone save the beer
Truth be known there wasn't much of a fire
Just an A.C. unit with a faulty wire
