The Lyrics

I find it rather amazing that so many people place themselves in harm's way with little thought given to what might happen to them - they seem to be quite sure they will be rescued if something goes awry...I'm sure there are some folks hanging around Mount St. Helen whose thought processes fit that profile.
I am up on Mount St. Helen
Taking pictures, wow, this really is cool
I am not worried; you know I'm countin'
on being bailed out by those guys who do rescues
Just like they always do

Bet it's really hot in there, that stuff sure pollutes the air
Guess when molten lava flows it could really burn your toes

The ground's shaking on this mountain
I'm not worried 'cause I'll be rescued soon
On local news my name they'll be announcing
and in the papers my picture you'll be viewin'
I'm laughin' like a loon

Now it's flowing down that side; saw small animals get fried
If this volcano does blow molten lava will then flow

Getting scared now; there's no doubtin'
Hope those rangers come and get me real soon
I'm really worried; now I am shoutin'
If this erupts I think my whole day will be ruined
I will consider suing

Now here come those melted rocks; my knees shaking, I'm in shock
This is really terrible; I am near hysterical

By hot embers I'm now showered
Now I'm howling; I think I am doomed
Climbed up a boulder, now I am poutin'
Hurry up, guys, I don't want to be entombed
Please rescue me real soon

Now I'm standing on this stone; I feel terribly alone
Lava's risen to my heels; I do not like how that feels

My assumptions; I mis-calc'd them
Now I'm stuck here, I have been such a fool
I'm in real trouble, worries are mounting
I was sure someone would rescue me; not true
Looks like this time I'm screwed

Yep, there's often some silly people hiking in New Hampshire White Mountains who think having a cell phone in their backpack will make the comfort-and-luxury-rescue-squad come helicoptering over the hill the moment they get a little too sweaty or sore. I exaggerate, true...but only slightly! Good message, Paul.

Great observations here Paul. I love volcanoes; we we at my Aunt's birthday celebration in Wyoming in 1980 or thereabouts when Mt St Helens blew, over 800 miles away. We had 2 inches of volcanic dust on our car the next day. I was a kid, and tripped out completely, and have been fascinated ever since. The Cumbre Vieja volcano in the Canary Islands, if it stays true to its history of eruptions, will erupt within the next 200 years and is projected to shear a trillion ton rock off the western side of the island, resulting in a massive sunami that will race across the Atlantic at 500 miles and hour and devastate the eastern seaboard of the US, as well asEurope and Africa. Details of this volcano can be found in DEEP FIRE RISING by Jack Du Brul. Over 200 million people will die if it happens as projected. Really scary.

Dee - Thanks! Really informative comment, too. Man, if that Cumbre Vieja sucker blows I guess a lot of us just might be kissing our ash good-bye...
