Cornfield Ablaze
by Prefab Sprout

I saw you from the tractor
The harvest had begun
You were the love child of two gods
I was the farmers awkward son

You left Mount Olympus
To find your soul mate
I left a scribbled note, quote
"Dear Pa, this here harvest can wait"

You took a match to my dry August days
Cornfield ablaze, cornfield ablaze
Flames licked the sky
That was some summer haze

Cornfield ablaze, cornfield ablaze
How do I love you?
Let me count the ways
Cornfield ablaze

Pa don't be angry
The fields that were host
To the corn and the wheat
The fact is they're toast

In self defense
I'm obliged to point out
There'll always a risk of combustion
When there's been a drought

You took a match to my dry August days
Cornfield ablaze, cornfield ablaze
Flames licked the sky
That was some summer haze

Cornfield ablaze, cornfield ablaze
How do I love you?
Let me count the ways
Cornfield ablaze

Imagine if the firemen worked
And worked for days
And still the cornfield stayed ablaze

Her hair it was golden
Her hair it was yarn
We were playing with fire
In the number one barn

Carried away like two sparks
On a breeze
Then we fused into one
At a thousand degrees

You overwhelmed agricultural man
Cornfield ablaze, cornfield ablaze
You wild pyromaniac daughter of Pan
Cornfield ablaze, cornfield ablaze

You took a scarecrow
And made him a man
Cornfield ablaze
