And if you have a lyric correction to post, please do it in that other thread, OK? And if you figure out chords-- they'd go there too, so it's all in one place.

Thanks, and good luck!

Correct lyrics (the previous ones were pretty close):

Last Day Of Pompeii


On the last day of Pompeii

Thought I heard some poor boy say

Oh, wow, man, if I knew then what I know now

I would've done more been more than I been

Had fun more sin, more mortal sin

Oh wow…If I knew then what I know now

I would've sent back that steak that was so overdone

Grabbed that big break while there was time

Made my life into a fantasy

Hot stuff for me to remember remember

And now that I'm a goner

All that lava rushin' 'round the corner

Oh wow I ain't complainin' only thinkin out loud

You know that my life would be different

my love would be different

If I knew then what I know now

My life would be different my love would be different

If I knew then what I know now

On the last day of Pompeii
Thought I heard some poor girl say
Oh wow man if I knew then what I know now
I could've taken up the slide trombone
Had a garden and grew my own
Oh wow man
If I knew then what I know now
I knew I should've taken that Mediterranean cruise
Filled up on chocolate cigarettes and booze
Given some perfect stranger the blues
Hot stuff for me, all that stuff, speakin of hot stuff
And when Vesuvio came to call
Arrivaderci I'd've had a ball [I'd've had it all]
Oh wow man
I ain't complainin' only thinkin' out loud
You know that my life would be different my love would be different
If I knew then what I know now
My life would be different my love would be different
If I knew then what I know now

Still working on the CORRECT chords (getting closer, anyway ;-))
