I Don't Want to Set the World On Fire is a 1941 song by The Ink Spots.

BackgroundEdit

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 instead. 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 canceled 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 landscape beneath the clouds.

It was used in the Fallout 3 intro and can also be heard on Galaxy News Radio throughout the game and also used in a couple of its commercials.

LyricsEdit

I don’t 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

I’ve lost all ambition for worldly acclaim
I just want to be the one you love
And with your admission that you feel the same
I’ll have reached the goal I’m dreaming of

Believe me
I don’t 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]
I’ve lost all ambition for worldly acclaim
I just want to be the one you love
And with your admission that you feel the same
I’ll have reached the goal I’m dreaming of

Believe me
I don’t want to set the world on fire
I just want to start
A flame in your heart
