Molten Lava     by Mrs. Stelle
sing to Oh, Suzanna

Oh, I come from below the surface
of the planet's crust,
forced up by heat and pressure
I erupt with awesome thrust.

     Chorus:
          Molten lava,
         
now don't you step on me
          'cause I come from red hot magma 
          
forming mountains that you see.

Shooting lava creates mountains
and the landscapes slowly change,
lots of mountains close together
form a mountain range.

       Chorus:

But my story doesn't end there
with the planet's birth,
erosion's always happening on
the surface of the earth.

       Chorus:

Sun and rain begin erosion
then come ice, sun, wind and snow,
slowly they deteriorate
every feature that we know.

        Chorus:
