( Earthquake drill song lyrics )
THEY SCHEDULED AN EARTHQUAKE
( FOR SATURDAY )
Copyright 2015 - MickTerry.com

I wasn't here back in 'Ninety-Four when the walls came a-tumbl-ing down.
First time for me was a 3.4, scared me out of a dream- profound.
But my girlfriend said, "No worries.
It's just an earthquake. Come on back to bed."

A   THEY SCHEDULED AN EARTHQUAKE FOR SATURDAY,
    but nobody came.
    THEY SCHEDULED AN EARTHQUAKE FOR SATURDAY,
    but ev'rybody's way too busy.
    THEY SCHEDULED AN EARTHQUAKE FOR SATURDAY.
    What if Sunday was The Big One?
    Not ev'rybody's saying we aren't prepared.

I stockpiled up on our water and food, but then we drank and ate- it all.
I bought supplies (that we still haven't used) to be prepared should the build-ings fall.
But my girlfriend said, "No worries.
There's no big earthquake. Prob'ly never come."

    CHORUS
    A

        Certified by C.E.R.T., they were certain
        a major earthquake's long overdue.
        but the more we spread the word,
        sounded like a broken record.
        All the more we learned, we're concerned
        'bout our neighbors' laidback lazy-ass view.
        They have heard about Nepal and Japan,
        so damned sure it won't happen to them.

They called a drill Saturday morning at Ten. Only twelve diehards fin'lly showed up.
We walked
our streets, walkie-talkied & then, checked our lists, packed our gear all back up.
But my girlfriend woke up screaming.
Now, Sunday's earthquake brought our whole town down.

B   THEY SCHEDULED AN EARTHQUAKE FOR SATURDAY,
    but nobody came.
    THEY SCHEDULED AN EARTHQUAKE FOR SATURDAY,
    but ev'rybody's way too busy.
    THEY SCHEDULED AN EARTHQUAKE FOR SATURDAY,
    but then Sunday was The Big One.
    Now, ev'rybody's saying we weren't prepared.
