play Old St. Helen

from What Kind Of Cat Are You?!

She got mad and lost her head
OLD ST. HELEN!
Sky turned black and the trees fell dead
OLD ST. HELEN!
Cleanup crews were working hard
OLD ST. HELEN!
They had to change that postcard
OLD ST. HELEN!

Oh, oh, oh, the mountains gonna blow!
Oh, oh, oh, the lava's gonna flow!
Oh, oh, oh, the ash is gonna rise!
Oh, oh, oh, there were pieces of the
mountain in your eyes, Up your nose
and down your chest! A little bit
deeper on every breath! She don't
care your point of view, now the
mountain's part of you!
RUMBLE!!!

Truman lived by Spirit Lake
OLD ST. HELEN!
They told him to leave, he said,"Aww,
give me a break!"
OLD ST. HELEN!
"I've lived on this mountain fifty years!"
OLD ST. HELEN!
"Ain't nothing moving me from here!"
OLD ST. HELEN!

May 18th, at 8:32
OLD ST. HELEN!
In 1980 that's when she blew
OLD ST. HELEN!
Old man Truman did not dodge
OLD ST. HELEN!
She covered him up inside his lodge
OLD ST. HELEN!

Ten years later I came by
OLD ST. HELEN!
Looking at the sights and the things
to buy
OLD ST. HELEN!
In between the mobile homes
OLD ST. HELEN!
I see she's got a brand new dome
OLD ST. HELEN!
