if i could travel back in time
i'd go to 1899 high in the sierra hills
and ride the lumber down the sanger flume

the flume ride the flume
ride the flume
ride the flume
ride the flume
watch out for that tree

forget log rides in amusement parks
this one's 50 miles long
water slide with four foot sides
down the mountain, 60 miles an hour

drop through the devil's slide
four thousand feet in 13 miles
miss a curve, ya sail into s___e
hope them 2 x 4's don't break the flume

ride the flume
ride the flume
ride the flume
ride the flume
me and you va-va-voom!

watch out for that tree
watch out for that tree!

around around to the sides of the cliffs we cling
the trestle creaks as we're swept across the canyon 100 feet below
rickety timbers - please don't fail me now
oh no...
oh no...
oh no...
oh no...

watch out for that tree
watch out for that tree
or its pine cone s__ face first for you and me.
