about

Returning to the subject for the first time since 1990's Oh Ye Firemen Jon E. Parker & The Sessionaires hit top form as they celebrate everybody's favourite extinguisher guys.

A three minute carnival ride evoking the exhilaration of a fire engine hurtling on its rescue mission like a bat out of hell, Vigiles takes you right into the heart of the action in a riotous cavalcade of guitars, bells, pianos, cellos, crumhorns and other instrument . Lives on the line, will they get there in time? Listen and find out!

lyrics

If you're on fire, if you're burning up
If you're on fire, if you're burning down
Call this chap tell him giddy-up
Call this chap tell him come to town
Don't tumble down, no need to frown
Everything's good with a fireman around

If you're burning going up in smoke
If you're burning sending smoke into the sky
Call this chap he ain't the sort to joke
Call this chap he won't drive on by
No word of a lie, no one has to die
With a fireman around: the extinguisher guy!

If you see a red truck going up the road
If you see a red truck with a ladder on the top
Give a little wave at the fireman load
Give a little wave but don't ask him to stop
If there's a light on the top going on and off
Then the firemen are heading to a place where it's hot

Coastguard's good if you're lost at sea
Ambulance is good for a cardiac arrest
Call those chaps if they're the people you need
But if your problem is a fire though a fireman is best
When the flames are manifest there's only one man I suggest
And a fireman also looks good in just his vest
