“Under The Volcano”
Artist: Pretty Things
Albums: Savage Eye (1975)

Flew into existence
Just a sweet bird of youth
Hugged friends on the pavement
Hid my dreams on the roof
Wrapped in a blanket from the National Health
It isn't money but then what is wealth?

Volcano
Volcano

My dad he left me back in fifty-six
The moon got tilted and the sadness was mixed
My mother loved me but she couldn't do much
She brought her kids up in a rabbit hutch

Heh hey hey
Volcano
Oh yeah
Volcano
Oh yeah
Volcano

Well it feels all right (feels all right)
Wish it felt good every night
Well it feels all right (feels all right)
Wish it felt good every night
Oh

Chuck Berry riffing drove me into my teens
The way I swaggered it was pure James Dean
In Indochina things were getting hot
I found the answer on a used car lot
Oh oh oh

Well it feels all right (feels all right)
Wish it felt good every night
Well it feels all right (feels all right)
Wish it felt good every night
Alright

The sun gets murdered as we hold back the night
The road's a river, but it feels alright
Route signals flashing and the border's gone
I'm rolling southward to a Maggie Bell song
I'm alright

(Volcano)
Well it feels all right
(Volcano)
I'm alright feel all right
(Volcano)
I feel I'm under the volcano
(Volcano)
Ooh

Under the volcano
I'm under the volcano
