I don't care who thinks we're silly, You be Daffy and I'll be Dilly, We'll order up two bowls of chilli, Setting the woods on fire.

4.

I'll gas up my hot rod stoker, We'll get hotter than a poker, You'll be broke but I'll be broker, Tonight we're setting the woods on fire.

5.

We'll sit close to one another, Up the one street and down the other, We will have a time oh-brother, Setting the woods on fire.

bridge 2:

We'll put aside a little time, To fix a flat or two, My tires and tubes are doing fine, But the air is showing through.

6.

You clap hands and I'll start bowing, We'll do all the law's allowin', Tomorrow I'll be right back plowing, Setting the woods on fire.
