Lyrics of Volcano

I don't know
I don't know
I don`t know where I'm gonna go when the volcano blows

I don't know
I don't know
I don`t know where I'm gonna go when the volcano blows

Ground she's moving under me
Tidal waves out on the sea
Sluphur smoke up in the sky
Parrotheads know how to fly

I don't know
I don't know
I don`t know where I'm gonna go when the volcano blows

Now my girl quickly said to me
Man you better watch your feet
Lava come down soft and hot
You better love-a me or love-a me not

I don't know
I don't know
I don`t know where I'm gonna go when the volcano blows

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 man soon come

I don't know
I don't know
I don`t know where I'm gonna go when the volcano blows

I don't know
I don't know
I don`t know where I'm gonna go when the volcano blows

But I don't want to land in New York City
I don't want to land in Mexico
I don't want want to land on no 3 mile island
don't want to see my skin aglow
I don't want to land in commanchiesky park
or Nashville, Tn.
I don't want to land in no San Juan airport
or Yukon Territory
I don't want to land in no San Diego
I don't want to land in Buzzard's Bay
I don't want to land on no Ayatolah
I got nothing more to say

I don't know
I don't know
I don`t know where I'm gonna go when the volcano blows

I don't know
I don't know
I don`t know where I'm gonna go when the volcano blows

'Volcano' is a song performed by American popular music singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett. It was written by Jimmy Buffett, Keith Sykes, and Harry Dailey and released as a single (b/w 'Stranded On A Sandbar') on MCA 41161 in November 1979.

It was first released on his 1979 album 'Volcano'. It reached #66 on the 'Billboard' Hot 100 and #43 on the Easy Listening chart.

The song and album are named for the then-dormant Soufrière Hills volcano on the island of Montserrat in the British West Indies where Buffett recorded the album in May 1979 at AIR Studios. The studio was destroyed by Hurricane Hugo in 1989 and Soufrière Hills erupted again in 1995.

The bridge before the final chorus mentions a number of placenames, some important largely in the context of 1979: 'Volcano' is one of Buffett's more popular songs with fans, and is part of 'The Big 8' that he has played at almost all of his concerts. Recorded live versions of the song appear on 'Feeding Frenzy', 'Buffett Live: Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays', and the video 'Live by the Bay'. The placenames in the final bridge are often altered in concert to reflect more recent news. The song was also re-recorded and released for Rock Band on June 3, 2008, with the last two lines listed above changed to, 'I want to be a couch potato / Just play Rock Band everyday.' Volcano was recorded in Montserrat and was played at the concert 'Music for Montserrat' when Montserrat was struck by a volcano. The lyrics were changed to fit the context. For example, the phrase 'We've got to help our friends in Montserrat' appeared in the song.

When performed at concerts, a video of the song on Rock Band is show.
