The Lyrics

This one is for Peter Anderson's One Week Notice challenge (Week 43) this time hosted once again by me... Matthias!!! I always thought being able to communicate with snakes would be a cool power. JK Rowling makes it seem like it's a bad thing just because the bad guy: Lord Voldemort does it too but in the right goofy hands you could have fun with it.

You'll hiss swears at some large snake
Anaconda hears all your noise, dude
Friends think you're words are insane
That cobra's vicious
Watch him bow... Like you're chums!

The whole scene looks a bit suspicious
When you're speakin' reptilian
Could it be magic? Spoke Parseltongue

Python you're fist bumpin'
How's that work?!
Vipers bounce to Whitesnake records
Those... Mambas you've persuaded with a wicked smirk
They're using squeegees
Wipin' down... Those windows

You're servin' all those serpents red wine
With a... Mouse as an aperitif, You're so concerning
With Parseltongue
Spoke Parseltongue

That rattlesnake joined your band
Hot tunes were played when their tails were whipped
With Parseltongue

Black adders watch "Blackadder" with you, That's sweet!
But your buddies are freaked out
You'll bask out in the heat
Making fun of the crocodiles

Griddle up some rat pancakes
Far from fake you're the Real Malfoy*, dude
Wrecked the zoo when snakes escaped
Scared Dudley shitless
Boa's chow, Need some TUMs?

You won't become a beast like Remus
But you'll still chat with specimens
Those legless dragons with Parseltongue
(Chill with a Diamondback... While people panic)
With Parseltongue

That Copperhead just wrote your thesis!
That Cottonmouth's souflee's delicious!
Chicks think that your spells are gross

*Pun, Take on the term - "Real McCoy"

I can't remember this type of parody being done with snake-puns before. Birds, farm animals, fish (done one of those myself) and sci-fi creatures - yes, but not snakes, so this might actually be a first.

That said, "rat pancakes" is the kind of food I've come to expect to find in your parodies - but I wonder if a snake would roll a pancake up before eating it - or does he/she just try bigger and bigger bites until it fails flat?

I like you didn't make it specifically about Harry, and focused on snakey puns instead (and The Real Malfoy was a great line, too).

My anaconda don't want none unless you got....oh wait, wrong anaconda song. Enjoyed the song, well done!

(Artistry) Coupla pacing flubs here and there, but otherwise a thoroughly enjoyable parody! Loved all the different snake species as well as the Blackadder shout-out. 555 flicks of the tongue!
