Johnny Rivers - The Snake Lyrics(Alright, here's the Snake...you dig?)On the way to work one morningdown the path along side the lakeA tender hearted womansaw a poor half-frozen snakeHis pretty colored skinhad been all frosted with the dew"Oh, well" she cried, "I'll take you inand I'll take care of you."CHORUSTake me in tender womanTake me in for heaven's sakeTake me in tender womanSSSSiiiiggghhhhed the SSSSSSnakeShe wrapped him up all cozyin a comforter of silkand then laid him by the firesidewith some honey and some milkShe hurried home from work that nightand as soon as she arrivedShe found that pretty snake she'd taken inhad been revived.ChorusShe clutched him to her bosom"You're so beautiful" she cried"but if I hadn't brought you inby now you might have died."Well she stroked his pretty skin againand then kissed him really tight,but instead of saying thanks,the snake gave her a vicious bite.Chorus"I saved you!" cried that woman"and you've bitten me but why?""you know your bite is poisonousand now I'm gonna die.""Ha ha, shut up, silly woman."said that reptile with a grin."You knew darn well I was a snakebefore you took me in."ChorusOh, you better take me in ssssssiiiiigggghhhed the Snake.
