Bottle Rocket

I am like a bottle rocket
Burning at both ends.
You gotta’ treat me gently
Or I’ll go off in your hands.

Give me your affection,
I’ll take you up too high
Every day is like the 4th of July
Every day, the 4th of July

I am like a bottle rocket,
Cursing through the sky
Only you can stop it
But you know you’re playing with fire

Double barrel shot gun,
When I’m begging for a light
Every day is like the 4th of July
Every day, the 4th of July

Here I come,
You’re about to set me off
Straight up,
Take it to the maximum

I am like a bottle rocket
Bursting at the seams
Slip me in your pocket,
I promise not to scream

Barrel down easy
When I burn up hard and bright
Blaze like the 4th of July
Every day, like the 4th of July

Here I come,
You’re about to set me off
Straight up,
Take it to the maximum

Here I come,
You’re about to set me off
Straight up,
Take it to the maximum

Go on, set me off.

I am like a bottle rocket
Burning at both ends.
You gotta’ treat me gently
Or I’ll go off in your hands.
