(You Will) Set the World on Fire (Bowie David)

Midnight in the Village Seeger lights the candles From Bitter End to Gaslight Baez leaves the stage Ochs takes notes When the black girl and guitar Burn together hot in rage You’ve got what it takes You say too much You will set the world babe You will set the world on fire I can work the scene babe I can see the magazines l can hear the nation I can hear the nation cry You will set the world babe You will set the world on fire You will set it on fire Kennedy would kill For the lines that you’ve written Van Ronk says to Bobby She’s the next real thing Crouched in the half light Screaming like a banshee You’re in the boat, babe We’re in the water You say too much You will set the world babe You will set the world on fire I can work the scene babe I can see the magazines l can hear the nation I can hear the nation cry You will set the world babe You will set the world on fire You will set it on fire
