London, May 13 (ANI): A song explaining the pronunciation of the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajvkull is fast becoming a rage on YouTube.

The volcano made headlines after it erupted last month leaving passengers stranded across European airports.

And now Icelandic singer Eliza Newman is helping people to pronounce its name.

Her video has racked up more than 200,000 hits on YouTube.

Playing the ukulele, Newman croons:

Eyjafjallajokull is a long, long name

For such a small glacier, with such notorious fame

And Eyjafjallajokull has caused quite a stir

And no-one can fly anywhere except the birds

Please stop it Eyjafjallajokull

"The volcano has caused a lot of problems around the world, not least with people who haven't been able to say it," the Sun quoted Newman, as saying.

She added: "Anything I can do to help people get their tongue round the word is fantastic. Little songs and rhymes always help." (ANI)
