Old Faithful is sleeping peacefully in Yellowstone
It has lived there a million years.

Suddenly with a rush, Old Faithful awakens and
erupts to the sky, a fountain of boiling water 100 feet high.

Tourist ooh in delight, at this spectacle,
Squirrels, deer and elk scamper safely away.

All is quiet for a moment,
as the fountain ebbs back into the ground to sleep.

Old Faithful holds a secret deep within it's chambers
It sleeps, awaiting the Dream Time.
When the earth will tremble, crack and with a mighty roar
Old Faithful will erupt into a fusion of fire and molten lava
to never sleep again.
