Al Wilson - The Snake

On her 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 oh tender woman
Take me in, for heaven's sake
Take me in, tender woman, ssssighed the snake

She wrapped him up all cozy in a comforter of silk
And then laid him by her fireside with some honey and some milk
She hurried home from work that night as soon as she arrived
She found that pretty snake she'd taken in had been revived

Take me in, oh tender woman
Take me in, for heaven's sake
Take me in, tender woman, sssssighed the snake

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
She stroked his pretty skin again and kissed and held him tight
But Instead of saying thanks, that snake gave her a vicious bite
(Owww!)

Take me in, oh tender woman
Take me in, for heaven's sake
Take me in, tender woman, sssssighed the snake

"I saved you," cried the woman
And you've bitten me, but why?
You know your bite is poisonous and now I'm going to die
"Oh shut up, silly woman," said the reptile with a grin
"You knew damn well I was a snake before you brought me in"

Take me in, oh tender woman
Take me in, for heaven's sake
Take me in, tender woman, sssssighed the snake
sssssighed the snake
Take me in, tender woman
come on in you pretty snake
[Fade]
