Jones, Tom - Burning Down The House Lyrics




Watch out you might get what you're after
Cool babies strange but not a stranger
I'm an ordinary guy
Burning down the house

Hold tight wait till the party's over
Hold tight we're in for nasty weather
There has got to be a way
Burning down the house

Here's your ticket pack your bag: time for jumpin' overboard
The transportations here
Close enough but not too far, maybe you know where you are
Fightin' fire with fire

All wet hey you might need a raincoat
Shakedown dreams walking in broad daylight
Three hun-dred six-ty five de-grees
Burning down the house
It was once upon a place sometimes I listen to myself
Gone come in first place
People on their way to work baby what did you expect
Gonna burst into flame

My house's out of the ordinary
That's might don't want to hurt nobody
Something sure can sweep me off my feet
Burning down the house

No visible means of support and you have not seen nothing yet
Everythings stuck together
I don't know what you expect starring into the TV set
Fighting fire with fire

  2. B Brunson

    I could never have imagined my life without Tom Jones. He has brought so much joy into all of our lives. Thank you!

  6. WonderfulWino

    tom jones doesnt look much older then the last time I saw him, on beavis and butthead show

  7. אביטל רווה

    Awosome duet

  8. Cracker Jack

    I like TJ, but absolutely NO to this remake👎

    HungDaddy

    No one cares about your opinon.

  9. Matt Moon

    The Talking Heads did the original.

  10. Rampant Gerbil

    It's kinda underwhelming. Did they tone down Toms voice in production to create something more homogenised?

  11. I can't find a good yt name

    A perfect representation of Australia's bushfires

    Burning Down the House

    Watch out you might get what you're after
    Cool babies strange but not a stranger
    I'm an ordinary guy
    Burning down the house

    Hold tight Wait till the party's over
    Hold tight We're in for nasty weather
    There has got to be a way
    Burning down the house

    Here's your ticket pack your bag
    Time for jumpin' overboard
    The transportation is here
    Close enough but not too far
    Maybe you know where you are
    Fightin' fire with fire

    All wet! Hey you might need a raincoat
    Shakedown! Dreams walking in broad daylight
    Three hun-dred six-ty five de-grees
    Burning down the house

    It was once upon a place sometimes I listen to myself
    Gonna come in first place
    People on their way to work baby what did you expect
    Gonna burst into flame
    Fighting fire with fire

    My house! Is out of the ordinary
    That's right! Don't wanna hurt nobody
    Some things sure can sweep me off my feet
    Burning down the house

    Watch out you might get what you're after
    Cool babies strange but not a stranger
    I'm an ordinary guy
    Burning down the house

    No visible means of support and you have not seen nothin' yet
    Everything's stuck together
    And I don't know what you expect staring into your TV set
    Fighting fire with fire

  13. Farit Swett

    Tom Jones una leyenda¡ Un escogido de los dioses¡

  14. Lynn Harrod

    The contrast between their voices and vocal styles is startling, but it works. I wouldn’t have thought of pairing them.

  15. EdlyLeMar

    makes you wonder.....if Elvis had lived, what kind of collaborations with more "current" artists may have occurred!

  16. Giuseppe Achilli

    In love with Nina Persson since the 90's

  17. Gino D'Orilia

    Waow !!! GIN(): )

  18. Shadowheartmk

    Duck Dawwwwwwwwwwwgers

  19. BoltFlashdrive

    Kinda works for me. I'm surprised. 👍

  20. Ken Roberts

    RIP Tom Jones , Talking Heads, and anything original left in this horrible fucking world

  21. Tony Williams

    Another comment. Tom Jones is a Monster

  22. John Doe

    Wow, Tom still has it!

  23. HINDKO ALERTS

    whos in 2020

  24. macleggett

    Tom. Jones. Is.The.MAN....

  25. SubUfer

    Jedyne co zgadza się z moim wyobrażeniem, zanim ujrzałem teledysk, to postać Toma Jones'a. Jakoś tak, właśnie, wyobrażałem sobie jego postać. Reszta, zupełnie inna.

  26. Elligons

    Boy she sounds flat.

  27. Matthias Eckert

    The Voice of Nina don't fits to the powerful voice of Tom

    Tammy

    I love her but your right it's a miss match

    Richard Bishop

    She is great but you are right. I think Tom Jones voice is to powerful for almost anyone to sing a deut with him. Nina is awesome but Tom is a talent that is phenomenal.

  28. Tudorinc

    Tom has been the same age since 1970 - possibly a vampire

    Michael Baughman

    I hope he doesn't gave blue balls.😏

  29. Tony Williams

    Stupid cover. But Tom Jones, OMG!

  30. Keith Weatherley

    Tom Jones what a voice , what a legend !

  31. leo zet

    When i see preview, i think, thats maybe gaga

  32. Hammerin' Hank

    Pure shit. Tom Jones has always been a joke though.

  33. Natalia Zakula

    Tom’s a house afire. Her pathetic vocals ruin the duet. Almost anyone else would’ve been better.

  34. Andrey K.

    Cool babies 😎

  35. Calum Weir

    I like Tom Jones but he does to Talking Heads what he does to Randy Newman - Tries to play it cool without keeping any of the nervousness that’s important to the theme of the song!

  36. difersato

    Merry christmas. Don't know who you are but you're beautifull. I love you bb 😘

  37. Sniper Mundy

    So, who else had the mp3 that featured that robot voice going “this is a free download from Mondo Net” or some rubbish...?

  38. Cindy D.

    Yes, love Tom Jones forever ☺🙏❤💯🙌

  39. DJD Bumblebee

    He's still got it after all these years! 🏆🏆🏆👍👍👍💛🐝💛🔥🔥🔥🔥

  40. loampey1

    Jones Rocks

  41. Bruce Chester

    Tom Jones is the coolest at any age.

  42. Joseph Ruggio

    I’m disgusted

  43. Emilio Cueto

    Es el abuelito de la cantante

  44. Dennis B

    Interesting.

  45. Roxanna Guerraro

    Could have been such a great video if Tom Jones have not done a mountain of blow before the shooting, those goofy close-ups really killed it for me.

  46. Logan

    QUE DUO

  47. Klyntar Kenny

    Nothing like Amplifying the 80s with a hit band from the 90s and a awesome singer from the 70s

  48. Miglior Store

    Tom Jones is one of my top 5 L.V.-kind of singer favourites... I think he could even have been on my top 50 singer whole-genre, but he would have added some flavour more to his bouquet of repertoire. He's very versatile, and he got personality alongside with a great explosive voice and technique.

  49. Michael Crumpton

    Tom Jones gives it all to every moment!

  50. Subzerouh

    if u digg toms voice, check out his tiny desk appearance.

  51. Wesley Bickel

    Didn't know what to expect, it's good

  52. usualsuspects42

    just answered it my own question - it was done in 1999.

  53. usualsuspects42

    when was this done?

  54. Sophdog

    On "My Favourite Game", she's great. Here she sounds like a squeaky pull-string doll compared to Tom. His voice completely overwhelms hers, and this was a bad choice for a duet.

  55. Sooz

    Tom Jones can sing ! wow

  56. Trumpenstein

    Who else wishes they would have let rip a real bold guitar solo on this?

  57. Spencer Welch

    Great version, great video.great editing.

  58. the pocket herc

    Non-cgi

  59. SaladeDressin

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBUe_v6Mi70 ... ten thousend times better...

  60. HelpingHandTV

    Listening up to 2020?

  61. Clark

    Should have done this with Robbie Williams instead.

    mo KAY

    Clark nah, Robbie would just end up trying to sing over Tom Jones

    Clark

    mo KAY 🤦🏻‍♂️

  62. centaurus777

  68. Ashadowtotheworld

  70. Melanie G

    1000 comment! This video reminds me of JXL- A little less conversation. Love it!

  71. losifer81

    Wow! 📱😹

  72. hobbity67

    I can totally see Tom Jones as the guy who loses it and burns down the house. 😆 In a good way.

  73. platinumblondeNo9

    fukkin' <3 it!

  74. Dee

    Watch out you might get what you're after
    Boom babies strange but not a stranger
    I'm an ordinary guy
    Burning down the house

    Hold tight wait till the party's over
    Hold tight We're in for nasty weather
    There has got to be a way
    Burning down the house

    Here's your ticket pack your bag
    Time for jumpin' overboard
    The transportation is here
    Close enough but not too far
    Maybe you know where you are
    Fightin' fire with fire

    All wet! Hey you might need a raincoat
    Shakedown! Dreams walking in broad daylight
    Three hun-dred six-ty five de-grees
    Burning down the house

    It was once upon a place sometimes I listen to myself
    Gonna come in first place
    People on their way to work and baby what did you except
    Gonna burst into flame

    My house! Is out of the ordinary
    That's right! Don't wanna hurt nobody
    Some things sure can sweep me off my feet
    Burning down the house

    No visible means of support and you have not seen nothin' yet

    Fighting fire with fire

  75. Lisa Hine

    Tom Jones is a legend!

  76. Jason Everett

    Is this a Master Class on how to ruin an otherwise great song?

  77. Everblue Freediving

    Good cover!

  78. YoshiPeach Mario

    1:26 BOO

  79. David Somers

    I absolutely love the originally but this one of the few remakes that can do it right. Unlikely combo that's just smokin!

  80. Imperial D

  93. Thaly Sanchez

    c'est un morceaux de talking head, cool la version :)

  94. Jason Duke 360

    Tom and Nina really did an epic performance on this song. I listen to it all the time. I wish the silver dancers had faced they reminding of the killer in american horror story 1st season it really creeps me out. I know the video was made before the show, but seeing Nina and Tim and hearing their singing makes up for it.

  95. Keith Harris

    Old men and cardigans seem to hand in hand....

  96. William Jordan

    Kristen Bell!
