lyrics

Volcano!
Volcano!
Volcano!

Hey!

In the year 79 AD
Mt. Vesuvius erupted
Burying the nearby cities
Of Herculaneum and Pompeii
In a layer of hot, scalding, ash and rock
Known as a pyroclastic flow

Nearly two thousand years
After the eruption
The preserved remains
Of the inhabitants of Pompeii
Were discovered and excavated
A terrifying reminder
Of the volcano's awesome strength

Volcano!
Volcano!
Volcano!

1883, Krakatau, Indonesia
One of the loudest
Volcanic eruptions ever recorded
With an eruption loud enough
To be heard 3,000 miles away,
It resulted in a tsunami so large,
More than 30,000 people perished
As a result
Another sobering reminder
Of the volcano's awesome strength!

Volcano!
Volcano!
Volcano!
