Biggest Flood Ever

Rick Aster
July 14, 2000

When the storm blew in I shut my windows tight
It rained all day and it rained all night
And then the scene in the morning must have been a mistake
Where there should be a valley, it looks like a lake
Oh no

I think I might have to skip breakfast and lunch
’Cause it looks like the donut shop got dunked
And there’s no way you’re gonna get to the gym
You can’t cross the bridge unless you can swim

It’s the biggest flood ever in this little town
It’s the biggest flood ever and it’s something to see
It’s the biggest flood ever and it’s going down in history

I hear the drought restrictions have just been revoked
I put my clothes in the dryer and now they’re all soaked
My neighbor with the Jet Ski said, "This could be fun."
I asked which dam burst, she said, "Every dam . . . "

It’s the biggest flood ever in this little town
It’s the biggest flood ever and it’s something to see
It’s the biggest flood ever and it’s going down in history

If you look at the headlines, they just say, "Blub!"
Now the mall rats have all joined the scuba club
Down at the pet shop all the fish got loose
If you don’t want to go to work today you’ve got an excuse
’Cause
It’s the biggest flood ever in this little town
It’s the biggest flood ever and I’m sure you’ll agree
It’s the biggest flood ever and it’s going down in history
As the biggest flood ever
It’s the biggest flood ever
The biggest flood ever
