Brian Eno song "Baby's on Fire" from his 1973 debut solo album Here Come the Warm Jets

Baby's on fire
Better throw her in the water
Look at her laughing
Like a heifer to the slaughter

Baby's on fire
And all the laughing boys are bitching
Waiting for photos
Oh the plot is so bewitching

Rescuers row row
Do your best to change the subject
Blow the wind blow blow
Lend some assistance to the object

Photographers snip snap
Take your time she's only burning
This kind of experience
Is necessary for her learning

If you'll be my flotsam
I could be half the man I used to
They said, "You were hot stuff
And that's what baby's been reduced to"

[3-minute guitar solo by Robert Fripp, guitarist for King Crimson]

[Guitar solo continues as Eno's vocal returns]

Juanita and Juan
Very clever with maracas
Making their fortunes
Selling secondhand tobaccos

Juan dances at Chico's
And when the clients are evicted
He empties the ashtrays
And pockets all that he's collected

But baby's on fire
And all the instruments agree that
The temperature's rising
And any idiot would know that

There are two live versions of this song. One of them appears on Eno's live album June 1, 1974. The other live version is by the band 801 with Phil Manzanera on lead guitar, and it appears on their 1976 debut live album 801 Live. The last line sung by Eno in the 801 Live version is, "Her temperature's rising, but any idiot could see that!"
