"BE A SURVIVOR"

Be a survivor! [That's right!]
Be a survivor [Now get this!]

Let's have a review of some fire rules.
Fire can be deadly, & that's the truth.
If you're going to use it, you'd better beware;
Be careful & be prepared.

Post your fire station number by the phone.
Don't play in the kitchen; watch out for the stove.
Matches can make other things ignite,
So learn to use them right.

Be a survivor!--[Yeah!]

Smoke detectors give a warning beep,
And a fire extinguisher is good to keep
Right in the kitchen, that's the best place;
And be sure to plan a fire escape.

And if you smell smoke or something strange,
Go tell somebody right away,
'Cause if you don't, but forget or wait,
If it's serious, it could be too late!

Chorus 1
Be a survivor & stay alive
By knowing just what to do. [Listen!]
Be a striver in keeping the fire safety rules.
[Oh, yeah!]
Be a survivor & stay alive.-
[Let me tell ya now!]
Be a striver in keeping the fire safety rules.

Watch out for: Leaf fires, campfires, gas fires, oil lamps,
Fireplaces, barbecues-any fire that you use.
Candlelight is dangerous at night,
So it's safer to use a flashlight.

And if you're caught in a fire, don't breathe the smoke;
Its fatal fumes can make you choke.
Get down low & crawl on the floor;
Get out through a window or door.

A capella
And don't stop to rescue any of your things;
Remember, your life is the important thing!
Get out, I tell you, don't go back in,
No matter what's happening!

And if your clothes catch on fire, don't start to run;
-Stop right there & drop to the ground.
Lie down & roll over, roll all about;
Roll around until you've put it out.

Chorus 2
Be a survivor & stay alive
By knowing just what to do.
Be a striver in keeping the fire safety rules. [Yeah!]
Be a survivor & stay alive.-[Watch out now!]
Be a striver in keeping the fire safety rules. [Listen to me!]

Survivor! [Get down! Low!]
Be a survivor! [It's hot, it's hot, it's hot, it's hot, hot, hot,
It's hot! You can't touch it!]
