Get Started Start A Fire - Graham Parker

    The Mona Lisa's sister doesn't smile
    She tried to pose but only for a while
    Leonardo sent her home
    Since then she has lived alone
    With her few belongings and a copy
    Of a painting of herself unhappy
    She is going to burn it when she's ready

    Get started, start a fire
    Get started, start a fire

    Marilyn was lying all alone
    With an empty bottle by the phone
    Kennedy was not around
    She was cold when she was found
    But she'd gone where goddesses are sleeping
    Where the molten tongues of flame are leaping
    Or where the angel's hearts are heating

    [Repeat Chorus]

    Joan of Arc was burning at the stake
    Somebody had made a big mistake
    She had lit a cigarette
    In an aiport where you get
    Your fingers taken off for smoking.
    Meanwhile up the road a factory's choking
    The ones who killed her work there I'm not joking

    [Repeat Chorus]
