The Lyrics

This one is for Olvan, Philbo and Billy -- I think you sort of requested it? Hee hee!
I like metamorphic
And some sedimentary
But know igneous thrills me
More than all of the rest
So you see I might panic
If it isn't volcanic
Just give me some pumice
And obsidian

Shale don't inspire me
I need lava to fire me
Give me tall heaping granite
Or basalt will suffice
You can keep your bitum'nous
Though it may be quite lum'nous
Too much crust's pressure
It just isn't gneiss

Flow ow ow ow ow ow ow...
I need lava to fire me
Come give me igneous
One third of Stonehenge

Hang onto your sandstone
You can't tempt me with limestone
I would rather have gemstones
Than carved serpentine
I could worship Vesuvi
It don't fail to move me
Just give me igneous
Gra-vel me again

I think we need someone like Tom Waits to sing it, with his gravelly voice.....

5's. Well in sync with the original. If I didn't know something about rocks I wouldn't know what you were singing about.

Should be called "The Rock Song". There are no minerals in it. :(
