Out in Hawaii
Where the lava freely flows
Out of the tops of the volcanoes
When the lava cools off
You know it hardens into rock
That's how it goes
That's how it flows

Out in Hawaii
Where the lava freely flows
Out of the tops of the volcanoes
They do the aa aa pahoehoe lava rock walk
Hey, don't knock it till you try it, my friend

Aa aa is really sharp and jagged
And it hurts when you walk in bare feet
When the lava's really viscous
It's an indication this is gonna make some sharp rock

Pahoehoe forms when lava's swiftly flowing
It's billowy and pillowy too
It's smooth and undulating
Just like hair before a braiding
And when you walk in bare feet
Ah ah, ooh ooh
