I got myself a sweetheart
A real good steady job
A house up on the hillside
Who's price keeps goin' up

Soakin' in my hot tub
Life's workin' out just right
But then the earth starts shakin'
Here comes the afterlife

Earthquake, earthquake
Ridin' hell's emotion
That earthquake, earthquake
Churnin' up the fear

That earthquake, earthquake
Devil's locomotion
That earthquake, earthquake
Gonna run me outta here

There's no head on this chicken
When the ground is on the rise
I flee in all directions
And I pray toward the skies

I've never been a coward
Or that extremely wise
But it doesn't take a genius
To know it's time to say goodbye

To that earthquake, earthquake
Ridin' hell's emotion
That earthquake, earthquake
Churnin' up the fear

That earthquake, earthquake
The devil's locomotion
That earthquake, earthquake
Gonna run me outta here

I'm packin' up and goin' to North Dakota
Well, I heard it's freezin' cold but I don't care
I'd rather get that frostbite on my fingers
Than end up crushed beneath my Frigidaire

So forgive me if I'm out of sorts
I'm really not to blame
The fault lies with Andreas
Oh, she's messin' up my brain

I love this sunny paradise
But hate it's rock and roll
Oh, I can't stand the ups and downs
I really gotta go

Earthquake, earthquake
Ridin' hell's emotion
That earthquake, earthquake
Churnin' up the fear

That earthquake, earthquake
Devil's locomotion
That earthquake, earthquake
Gonna run me outta here

That earthquake, earthquake
That earthquake, earthquake
Earthquake, earthquake
That earthquake, earthquake
Oh, I'm gettin' out of here

That earthquake, that earthquake
That earthquake, oh, I'm gettin' out of here
(That earthquake)
Bye, bye, bye, bye
(That earthquake)
That earthquake, oh, I'm gettin' out of here
