Description Edit

"I Don't Want to Set the World On Fire" is a 1941 song by The Ink Spots, used in the Fallout 3 intro. It was initially going to be used in the original Fallout intro, but Interplay was unable to get the license, so it was scrapped and "Maybe", another song by The Ink Spots, was used. A reference remained in the dialog, as Dane recites the first line.

It was also going to be used in the concluding movie for Van Buren, the cancelled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios. After the Prisoner decided which locations are to be nuked by B.O.M.B.-001, he was going to leave in the escape pod and the movie, showing the pod as it arcs over the Earth, would start, playing "I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire". Large nuclear blasts would be seen dotting the lands beneath the clouds.

[Lyrics]

   I dont want to set the world on fire 
   I just want to start 
   A flame in your heart 
   In my heart I have but one desire 
   And that one is you 
   No other will do 
   Ive lost all ambition for worldly acclaim 
   I just want to be the one you love 
   And with your admission that you feel the same 
   Ill have reached the goal Im dreaming of 
   Believe me 
   I dont want to set the world on fire 
   I just want to start 
   A flame in your heart 

[Spoken Word]

   I don't wanna set the world on fire, honey 
   I love ya too much 
   I just wanna start a great big flame 
   Down in your heart 
   You see, way down inside of me 
   Darlin' I have only one desire 
   And that one desire is you 
   And I know nobody else ain't gonna do 

[Sung]

   Ive lost all ambition for worldly acclaim 
   I just want to be the one you love 
   And with your admission that you feel the same 
   Ill have reached the goal Im dreaming of 
   Believe me 
   I dont want to set the world on fire 
   I just want to start 
   A flame in your heart
