BURN MY CANDLE (AT BOTH ENDS) (Ross Parker) Shirley Bassey (with Wally Stott's Orch.) - 1956 Who’s got a match worth striking Don’t say it all depends Who wants to help me burn my candle At both ends Who’s got a light he’s hiding Under a bushel, friends Who wants to help me burn my candle At both ends It’s possible it may not last the night But while it burns, what a wonderful light Who’d like to play with fire As Satan recommends Who wants to help me burn my candle At both ends Who doesn’t mind the reaper After he’s sown wild oats Who wants to take a chance And help me burn my boats Who’s not a look then leaper Who won’t heed a warning note Who wants to take a chance And help me burn my boats It’s possible the pace may prove too hot But then again it could happen it’s not Who’d like to get in deeper Not caring if he floats Who wants to take a chance And help me burn my boats There’s S for scotch, that’s so direct And for straight and simple sex I for invitation too Close relationship with you N for nothing, that no less S-I-N, that's sin I guess Who’s got a good ignition Waiting for dividends Who wants to help me burn my candle At both ends Who’s really in condition Won’t mind how much he spends Who wants to help me burn my candle At both ends It may not last, but it’s all in the game, my friend And while it burns what a fabulous flame Who has an inhibition Weaker than he pretends Who has an urge to turn the handle Open my door and spurn the scandal Who wants to help me burn my candle At both ends (Transcribed by Carlene Bogle - April 2004) (Updated by Mel Priddle - July 2014)
