"Lava" as written by Ricky Wilson, Cynthia Wilson, Kate Pierson, Fred Schneider and Keith Strickland....
My body's burnin' like a lava from a Maura Loa
My heart's crackin' like a Krakatoa
Krakatoa, east of java, molten bodies, fiery lava

Fire, fire, burnin' bright
Turn on your love lava
Turn on your lava light
Fire, oh volcano, over you
Don't let your lava love turn to stone
Keep it burnin'
Keep it burnin' here at home

Oooo hot lava
Oooo hot lava

My love may be as high as the highest volcano
But the altitude is way too high
Well it gets so cold when you look at me that way, yeah
I just want to have that hot lava
Lovin' me away

My love's mountin'
My love's eruptin' like a red hot volcano
Fire, oh volcano, over you
I gotta lotta lava love locked up inside me

My love's a lava bomb
Knock you in the head
Knock you in the head
Kick you in the lava bed
Over you, hot lava
Don't let your lava love turn to stone
Keep in burnin'
Keep it burnin' here at home

Oooo it's so hot
It's burnin' up in here
Oooo look out, it's about to erupt
Oooo my body's burnin' like a lava from a Mauna Loa
My heart's crackin' like a Krakatoa

Hot fire, red-hot fire
Lava, ohh, hot lava
Hot lava, red-hot lava
Hot lava, re-e-ed, hot lava
Oh hot lava

I'm gonna let it go
Let it flow like Pompeii or Herculaneum
Let it sizzle, let it rise
Don't let your lava love flow turn to stone
Keep it burnin'
Keep it burnin' here at home

I'm gonna jump in a crater
See ya later
Oooo hot lava
Oooo hot lava
Hot lava
Red hot lava
Hot lava
Red hot lava
Yeah

    My InterpretationDouble Entendre - The B's say this song is about volcanoes, and was taken from reading in dictionaries and/or a book about volcanoes. I know Fred would sometimes swap out the Herculaneum with "Mt St. Helens" and other volcanic eruptions live.

    The Entendre of the matter is that it sounds like a 3 way with each participant expressing their narriative of the story. Ie, one gal (Cindy) loves it a lot, another one is doing it for the love (Kate), and the guy is just after empty sex (Fred).

    I think there's multiple entries for this song, despite orientation of the members of the band, I pretty much think they can write whatever story they want.
