The firemanís last prayer

Oh lord let me die a natural death

Because I donít want to burn

I have seen so many lord

For fresh air they did yearn


I have held the lifeless body

Of a little child

Please lord let me die a natural death

Let me stay around a while


And while Iím praying to you lord

There are others next to me

Provide an exit from this fate

So we can all be free


But if in the line of duty

I must go this way

Let me know before I go

Another I have saved
