The Lyrics

The Ring Of Fire is a series of tectonic faults surrounding the Pacific Ocean. The lands around this ring (Japan, Kamchatka, southern Alaska, the west coast of the US, the Andes in South America, etc.) are prone to earthquakes and include lots of volcanoes. *According to Japanese folklore, the world is carried on the back of a spider, whose movements cause earthquakes.
La---va's a burning thing
The earth quakes around this ring
Clash---tectonic plates
If you live here, you're tempting fate

Round the sea
The Pacific ring of fire
Geologic faults
Volcanos growing higher
And it shakes and bakes
The ring of fire
The ring of fire

(instrumental)

Round the sea
The Pacific ring of fire
San Andreas Fault
Volcanos growing higher
And it shakes and bakes
The ring of fire
The ring of fire

Japan, on spider's back*
Kurils, and Kodiak
Mount Saint Helens, Mount Rainier
Let's, get away from here

They're all in
The Pacific ring of fire
Geologic faults
Volcanos growing higher
And it shakes and bakes
The ring of fire
The ring of fire

I'm playing my guitar and singing this for my Earth Science class tomorrow. We've been studying plate tectonics, earthquakes and volcanoes. This will be a fun way to teach the Pacific Ring of Fire. If I have time, I might put a slide show with it.
