Comb your hair and paint and powder
You act proud and Ill act prouder
You sing loud and Ill sing louder
Tonight were setting the woods on fire

You my gal and Im your feller
Dress up in your frock of yeller
Ill look swell but youll look sweller
Setting the woods on fire

Well take in all the honkey tonks
Tonihgt were having fun
Well show the folks a brand new dance
That never has been done

I dont care who thinks were silly
You be daffy and Ill be dilly
Well order up to bowls of chili
Setting the woods on fire

Ill gas up my hot rod stocker
Well get hotter than a poker
Youll be broke but Ill be broker
Tonight were setting the woods on fire

Well sit close to one another
Up the one street and down the other
Well have a time o brother
Setting the woods on fire

Well put aside a little time
To fix a flat or two
My tires and tubes are doing fine
But the air is showing through

You clap hands and Ill start bowing
Well do all the laws allowin
Tomorrow Ill be right back plowing
Setting the woods on fire
