about

This song was written for the Safety Clubhouse, a cable program produced by several fire and life safety educators in Montgomery County, Ohio.

The chorus evolved into a sound much like a surf tune, but the song didn't have the traditional elements of most surf songs. I had to debate with myself for a name for the tune. I just decided to keep it simple. It sounds that way, so that's what it is called.

lyrics

Surf EDITH

I was sleepin' in my bed where it's nice and calm
When I heard a loud noise, 'was my smoke alarm.
It could have been bad, I might be there still
but I had a little plan called an Exit Drill.

An Exit Drill is something you should know
If a fire is in your house you'll know where to go
When the smoke detector beeps don't just run around
Go to the floor and just stay down!

When a fire is in a house there's smoke in the air
So crawling down low is the way to go.
If you wanna breathe stay down low
It's safer there than anywhere.

I went to the door as I crawled on the floor
And felt it with the back of my hand
It didn't feel hot, so I opened it slow
I didn't see smoke so I crawled down low.

Once I got outside went to a meeting place
That was next to a tree in my front yard space.
Then someone from my family
Went to the neighbor's house to use the telephone.
Dial 9-1-1 fire emergency, but never call in your own home.

An Exit Drill is something you should know
If a fire is in your house you'll know where to go
When the smoke detector beeps don't just run around
Go to the floor and just stay down!

An Exit Drill is something you should know
If a fire is in your house you'll know where to go
When the smoke detector beeps don't just run around
Go to the floor and just stay down!

An Exit Drill is something you should know
If a fire is in your house you'll know where to go
When the smoke detector beeps don't just run around
Go to the floor and just stay down!
