Snakes Watch out for them They come in all shapes and sizes Like chameleons Stab you in the back When you think they’re your friends They can change colors Cold-blooded reptiles You can’t tame them Because they belong in the wild Forked tongue smile like a crocodile Male and female alike With no name Who’s to blame? You are For letting them in your backyard Being too kind In the back of your mind You know something’s not right All they do is creep at night And lay low Like the Serpent and the Rainbow Rattlers are the worst Because they let you know That they’re coming, gunning, got you running Blindly through the woods, rainforest, and desert They can adapt to any weather Sea serpents are the smoothest Because they don’t talk Just peep your moves With snake eyes and plot Anacondas are a motha They can squeeze the life right out of ya, slowly King cobras are bolder They show ya that there’re coming for ya Can’t make a move Because if you do, it’s too late, to start Deadly venom racing for your heart Some even can’t their diamonds back I’m telling you the truth It’s no lie, so you better recognize Their disguise They shed their skin right in front of your eyes Then it’s too late To realize it’s just a snake
