Burn Baby Burn

Estrogen will buy more time:
Pills or implants? It's your dime.
Weigh your choices carefully;
Artificial youth ain't free.
Someday soon, you too will learn
All of us are gonna burn.

Fill in tiny lines with cream;
Laser surgeons leave no seam.
Suck the fat from thighs and hips;
Collagen will puff your lips.
Someday soon, you too will learn
All of us are gonna burn.

Married, single, gay or straight --
Lost in love or fueled by hate.
Rich or poor or middle class --
No prince will come to save your ass.
Someday soon, you too will learn
All of us are gonna burn.

Decked out in the latest style,
Ride that bike another mile.
Find yourself a younger lover,
One who's better than the other.
Someday soon, you too will learn
All of us are gonna burn.

Chorus:
Burn baby burn.
All that money that you earn
Won't save you, girlfriend,
You, too, will burn.

Coda:
Burn baby burn.
When will you ever learn --
When time runs out,
Baby, you'll burn.
Biology is destiny --
And someday, baby,
You, too, will burn.

When time runs out,
baby,
you'll burn.
