song du jour: FIRE (poll)

Rumor has it that Bruce Springsteen sent this to Elvis only weeks before his death and it ended up with the Pointer Sisters.  Now, tell me, which version do you prefer, The Boss or The Pointer Sisters?

Here’s the composer, The Boss:

Here are The Pointer Sisters:

Here’s The Poll:

Now, here are the lyrics:

I’m riding in your car….
You turn on the radio…
You’re pulling me close…
I just say no…
I say I don’t like it…
But you know I’m a liar…
Cause when we kiss…
Oooooh…
Fire…

Late at night…
You’re taking me home…
You say you wanna stay…
I say I wanna be alone…
I say I don’t love you…
But you know I’m a liar…
Cause when we kiss…
Oooooh…
Baby it’s Fire…

You had a hold on me Right from the start…
A grip so tight I couldn’t tear it apart…
My nerves are jumping Actin’ like a fool…
Well your kisses they burn…
But my heart stays cool…

Romeo and Juliet…
Samson and Delilah…
Baby you can bet…
A love they couldn’t deny…
My words say split …
But my words they lie…
Cause when we kiss…
Oooooh…
Baby it’s Fire…

Oooooh…
Baby it’s Fire…

Kisses like fire…
Burn me up with fire…
I like what you’re doing now…
Fire…
Touching me with fire…
Touching me…burning me…
Fire…
Take me home…
