Could be a square dance song
A little dumb ditty.

I felt a tremor beneath my feet

I thought it was my stomach rumbling

It shook the leaves on the trees

right before I went to stumbling.

Laying in bed and sound asleep

till we woke up on the floor

Everyone in the house will weep

as the earth does shake once more.

Big ole Earthquake shake us down

and split our souls from sky to ground

Wiggle us jiggle us heart and mind

our bodies lost a little weight this time.

Kids hang on for dear life

but there's no deers around

So I'll just grab for my wife

as in the dark I've found.

We are bouncing on our beds

as the windows crack

Watch out cover up our heads

counting tremors don't lost track.

Big ole Earthquake shake us down

and split our souls from sky to ground

Wiggle us jiggle us heart and mind

our bodies lost a little weight this time.

I felt a tremor beneath my feet

I thought it was my stomach rumbling

It shook the leaves on the trees

right before I went to stumbling.
