  • I feel like goin' surfing in a hurricane
    I feel like makin' love in the pourin' rain
    I ain't afraid of dyin'
    I don't need to explain
    I feel like goin' surfing in a hurricane

    We left the bar last night about half past eight
    Down to the Alabama shore, not the aloha state
    This storm may turn, it was too late
    And we ain't the kind to evacuate
    The impact zone is callin' out my name

    Sea monster night pulling nothing but pride and fear
    St. Christopher might not get our asses outta here
    Flooded roads, and trailer parks
    And maybe a tornado lurkin' in the dark
    The perfect life, riding to eternity

    I feel like goin' surfin' in a hurricane
    I feel like makin' love in the pourin' rain
    I ain't afraid of dyin'
    I don't need to explain
    I feel like goin' surfing in a hurricane

    The waves were hard, the seas were high
    Wicked thunderbolts flashed in my eyes
    We swam out to the sandbar in the dark
    Howling at the moon, cussin' at the sharks

    I made the first drop and my kahonas were in my throat
    Then the second wave launched me like a rocket that's all she wrote
    Upside down, water on the brain
    Hand on the bottom but feelin' no pain
    Screamin' like a demon, paddlin' out again

    I feel like goin' surfin' in a hurricane
    I feel like makin' love in the pourin' rain
    I ain't afraid of dyin'
    There's no need to explain
    I feel like goin' surfing in a hurricane

    I feel like goin' surfin' in a hurricane
    I feel like makin' love in the pourin' rain
    I ain't afraid of dyin'
    I got no fear in my brain
    I feel like goin' surfing in a hurricane
    I feel like goin' surfing in a hurricane

    Let's paddle out boys!
    Killer surf!
    And I mean killer!
    Let's go!

    Surfin' in a hurricane.

  • Capt Rino from St. Pete Beach, Fl.Born and raised on Pensacola Beach and I’ve surged during a few tropical storms and approaching hurricanes!
  • Alan Williams from Pensacola, FlFirst thing I thought of when I saw the title of this song is going surfing the day before hurricane Camille hit the Gulf Coast. I'm sure the s a n e r types we're making all sorts of comments about me and the 40 other guys that were out there, but did I care? H e c k no, because it was too much fun.
  • Ken from MargaritavilleThis song is a mix of B-52's keyboards, surf-twang guitar and vaguely reminiscent of the theme from the "Munsters". The lyrics are *awesome*.
