Fire Hydrant #79
The red headed stranger loves to disco...

Fire hydrant #79
Standing on the corner by the "No Parking" sign
You're the only friend I've got in Nashville, Tennessee
You work for the city in the rain and the fog
Gettin' no respect from the neighborhood dogs
And when I sing, you're the only thing that listens to me

Fire hydrant, stumpy and red
I love you even though you've got no hair on your head
Today I hocked my guitar to buy you and me a bottle of wine
Well I'm goin' away 'cause you'll never be mine
I know you're in love with that "No Parking" sign
But I'm gonna miss you, Fire Hydrant #79.

(instrumental break)

Fire hydrant, built like a jug
When I'm feeling low, you're always good for a plug
Today I hocked my guitar to buy you and me a bottle of wine
Well I'm goin' away 'cause you'll never be mine
I know you're in love with that "No Parking" sign
But I'm gonna miss you, Fire Hydrant #79.

(Fade:)
I'm gonna miss you, Fire Hydrant #79
(Aw, that's beautiful!)
I'm gonna miss you, Fire Hydrant #79
(Whip that on me one more time!)
I'm gonna miss you, Fire Hydrant #79
I'm gonna miss you, Fire Hydrant #79...
