Chorus:
Better get ready, the storm is coming
The water’s rising, get to higher ground
Better get ready, the storm is coming
It will pick us up and turn us round

Sitting by the water on a hot summer’s day
Dreaming and scheming our lives away
No need to worry, we got plans
We got it together; we know where we stand

Chorus

The forecasters say we better beware
They tell us what to do and how to prepare
We don’t what they tell us to
Now we’ve nothing to live for; our lives are through

Chorus

Our lives were changed in just one day
Everything we worked for was washed away
Then neighbors came together; came unbound
Picked things up and turned it round

Last Chorus:
Better get ready, the storm is coming
The water’s rising, get to higher ground
Better get ready, the storm is coming
It’s time to get picked up and turn it … round
