Fire, Fire, Fire, Raging All About

Members of NYFD Ladder 120/Engine 231 and their dog, Tiller
Like many a kid, I was fascinated with firetrucks and firefighters. I still am and sometimes stop by a firehouse near Kiko's House on my bike rides to have a chat with the men and women (yes, women) who are washing the trucks or just hanging out.

Popular Mechanics has a nifty article on the firefighters at the Watkins Street firehouse in Brooklyn, one of New York City's busiest with more than 4,200 runs a year.

As a kid I had the record fo the song, "Fire, Fire, Fire, Raging All About". I still remember the tune & lyrics. Anyone have more info on the song?

Fire, fire, fire, raging all about, here come the firemen to put the fire out. Hook and ladder, get that hose..."

Can't remember the rest. Wish we could track it down.

This is what my 79 yo mother remembers. I used to listen to it as a young child.
Fire fire fire raging all about
Here come the firemen to put the fire out
They leap into their coats and boots
And slide down poles in one big scoot
Hook and ladder rubber hose.....

I found more lyrics and a link to here the song.

Fire fire fire
Here the people shout
Where are the firemen to put the fire out
They leap into their hats and boots
And slide down poles with one big scoot
They board their engine
Off it goes
With hook and ladder rubber hose
They pass us by so very fast
We’ve hardly to gaze
Their big bells clang
Make way for us
To fight the roaring blaze

This has a correction. Also the link is to "hear" the song.

Fire fire fire
Here the people shout
Where are the firemen to put the fire out
They leap into their hats and boots
And slide down poles with one big scoot
They board their engine
Off it goes
With hook and ladder rubber hose
They pass us by so very fast
We’ve hardly time to gaze
Their big bells clang
Make way for us
To fight the roaring blaze
