Johnny Rivers - The Snake Lyrics

  • (Alright, here's the Snake...you dig?)
  • On the way to work one morning
  • down the path along side the lake
  • A tender hearted woman
  • saw a poor half-frozen snake
  • His pretty colored skin
  • had been all frosted with the dew
  • "Oh, well" she cried, "I'll take you in
  • and I'll take care of you."
  • Take me in tender woman
  • Take me in for heaven's sake
  • Take me in tender woman
  • SSSSiiiiggghhhhed the SSSSSSnake
  • She wrapped him up all cozy
  • in a comforter of silk
  • and then laid him by the fireside
  • with some honey and some milk
  • She hurried home from work that night
  • and as soon as she arrived
  • She found that pretty snake she'd taken in
  • had been revived.
  • Chorus
  • She clutched him to her bosom
  • "You're so beautiful" she cried
  • "but if I hadn't brought you in
  • by now you might have died."
  • Well she stroked his pretty skin again
  • and 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 poisonous
  • and now I'm gonna die."
  • "Ha ha, shut up, silly woman."
  • said that reptile with a grin.
  • "You knew darn well I was a snake
  • before you took me in."
  • Chorus
  • Oh, you better take me in ssssssiiiiigggghhhed the Snake.
