Jimmy Buffett - Volcano Lyrics



Now, I don't know, I don't know where I'm a gonna go
when the volcano blow.
Let me say it now,
I don't know, I don't know where I'm a gonna go
when the volcano blow.

Ground, she movin' under me.
Tidal waves out on the sea.
Sulphur smoke up in the sky.
Pretty soon we learn to fly

[Chorus:]
Let me hear you, now
I don't know, I don't know where I'm a gonna go
when the volcano blow.
Let me hear you now.
I don't know, I don't know where I'm a gonna go
when the volcano blow.

My girl quickly say to me,
"Mon you better watch your feet."
Lava come down soft and hot.
"You better lava me now or lava me not.

[Chorus]

No time to count what I'm worth,
cause I just left the planet Earth.
Where I go I hope there's rum.
Not to worry mon soon come.

[Chorus]

But I don't want to land in New York City,
I don't want to land in Mexico.
I don't want to land on no Three Mile Island;
I don't want to see my skin a-glow.

Don't want to land in Comanche Sky Park,
or in Nashville, Tennessee.
I don't want to land in no San Juan airport or
the Yukon Territory.

Don't want to land no San Diego.
Don't want to land in no Buzzards Bay.
I don't want to land on no Ayatolla.
I got nothin' more to say.

[Chorus]

  65. Jeff Hurley

    Lots of questions about the "Commanche Skypark " line It is actually Camanche and this is the story from Jimmy's tour guy in 1979 "Okay - so here's the scoop on what happened at Comanche sky park. I was Jimmy's tour manager for 17 years , and was at the show . We were flying in to Commanche sky park to do the show with Jimmy, and were in small planes provided by the promoters. I believe we were using 2 or 3 planes to get the whole band in. As we circled the runway to make our landing, there were stunt planes flying all around us, and off the runway was a plane that had crashed while landing at the strip. This made Jimmy and all of us very concerned. The plane landed, the show went off, and we all stayed overnight in our luxurious condominiums. (we all preferred hotels, so this was no big deal for us). I believe Jimmy also had a broken leg at the time. We left camanche sky park the next day, and all the excitement and disorganization of the show made a line in Jimmy's Volcano song! and this from the Pilot " its been a long time but i think it had to do with a combination of a night landing, no lights, and a short runway at the ranch [he is referring to camanche skypark, we call it the ranch in our family] and at angels camp [a small town about an hour from camanche] where the concert with jackson brown was held. Jimmy is a pilot himself but he was scared of our ass backwards country flying. we had a big party in camanche afterward"

  66. Aidon Hines

    i sing this song for show

  67. Charlton Griffin

    One of the greatest comic songs of all time.

  68. Mike Schwab

    Should have used Mt. St. Helens for "When the volcano blows".

  69. Stephen Tuttle

    I'm going to see Buffet tonight!!!!!

  70. Aaron Z

    I grew up listening to Buffett as my dad was/is a huge parrot head. One of the greatest story tellers of all time. He just has a way of "taking you there" in his songs.

  71. steve rennick

    I went to Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville inside the River Spirit Casino in Tulsa, Oklahoma earlier this evening. At about 8:00 pm that evening, Margaritaville's lights went down and this song was played.

  79. Jason Secrest

    i love you

  80. EJSFilms2K

    being a 30 year fan of JIMMY BUFFETT brought me here. no thumbs required.

  84. D Olkeriil

    "Faith" made me think of this one and brought me here.

  85. Kenneth Mitchell

    Great song, but these volcano images don't match the song. Buffett's song "Volcano" is more focused on the pyroclastic explosion on the island of Montserrat in 1995.

    23mako

    Didn't he write this song in the late 70s?

    Jrock420blam

    Jimmy Buffet is obviously Dr.Who and he wrote this about the future, which today is the past. DUH!

    jklewisjkldev

    written and recorded in 79 on Montserrat. The volcano was apparently active at that time.

    Paul Scofield

    The Soufrière Hills volcano was dormant at that time, became active and erupted in 95.

  86. Guy Snyder

    Hey, the Yukon Territory rocks! Love this song, have forever!

  90. poiutrew

    A bit of useless information: A'a is the Hawaiian name for a basaltic rock with a crumpled and sharp surface. The name is onomatopoeic because "A'a" is the sound you make when you walk across it barefooted.

    Stephanie Smith

    poiutrew

    A A Q

    poiutrew - the smooth lava is called pahoehoe.

    Dave Hein

    You had me at "onomatopoeic".

    Asunicon Carter

    I love useless information......
