Bonnie Raitt – Burning Down The House

Bonnie Raitt – Burning Down The House – Capitol Records, 2010.

No one comes close, and never will–she is in a class by herself! Great cover. Bonnie always appears effortless when she plays.

Bonnie is in a category all her own. No one else has that something special that she has about everything she does and is. She is the ultimate real deal!

Watch out, you might get what you’re after
Cool baby, you’re strange but not a stranger
I’m an ordinary girl
And I’m burnin’ down the house

Hold tight, wait till this party’s over
Hold tight, well we’re gonna be in for some nasty weather
There has got to be a way
And we’re burnin’ down the house

Here’s your ticket, pack your bags, it’s time for goin’ overboard
Transportation is here
Close enough but we’re not too far, bet you’re wonderin’ where you are
Fight fire with fire

Burning down the house

All wet, and you might need a raincoat
Shake down, my dreams are walkin’ in broad daylight
365 degrees
And we’re burnin’ down the house

My house, out of the ordinary
That’s right, I don’t want to really hurt nobody
Some things sure sweep me off my feet
And we’re burnin’ down the house
