Over in China they got smart real fast That's where they invented the man made blast. They lost a few infers and some bamboo shacks, But they gave birth to a tribe of pyromaniacs. Chorus Oh oh, it's a dangerous world. Fire in the sky, lava in the ocean, Sittin' round waitin' for the next explosion
Back in the fifties they thought it made good sense To teach all the school children about civil defense. Don't be scared, do not cry, Just dive under your desk and kiss your ass goodbye. Chorus Oh oh, such a dangerous world. It was a hell of a hustle, paranoia promotion Waiting at ground zero, for the next explosion.

Firs in the sky, fallin' on the ocean Sittin' round waitin' for the next explosion.
