The Lyrics

Wriggling ribbon from its lair
Makes its way along the hall,
Slithering on slippery skin;
Got no legs, so it can’t crawl.

On it sidles, on it slides—
Does is slither on outside?
I think I’ve lost it this time.
Help! My snake is out of sight.

It is very, very long,
Stretched out, higher than a man
Playing center on the hardwood—
Seven feet from end to end.

Serpent plays and then it’s gone;
If someone finds it, there’s fright.
I’ve been bad and must atone—
Help! My snake is out of sight.

I’ve been very, very wrong
To have allowed it to scram.
Now it’s wending away—not good;
Hope it don’t meet a sad end.

Serpent wastes no time—it’s gone;
I have sorrow for its flight.
F**k it! I think I’ll get stoned. . .
Swell, I’m wasted—feel alright.

The snake’s flattened on the road:
Swell eats—tasty chow tonight.

You know why that snake never made it out of the Bronx Zoo? Because enough is enough! The people of New York have had it with these MF'in' snakes!
