The Snake (ver. 2)

Year: 1966 -

(Oscar Brown Jr)

  		 Dm  
             On her way to work one morning, down the path along a lake  
                                                           	     A7  
             A tender hearted woman found a poor half frozen snake  
	       Dm  
	His pretty coloured skin had been all frosted with the dew  
						     A7  
	?Oh, snake? she said ?I?ll take you in and I?ll take care of you?.  
  
                     	    Dm	  
 Chorus: 	Take me in tender woman, take me in for heaven sake  
                                                           A7  
             	Take me in oh tender woman ssssssssighed the Snake   
  
             She wrapped him up all cozy in a comforter of silk       
   	 And laid him by the 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  
  
Chorus    
  
             She clutched him to her bosom ?You?re so beautiful? she cried  
       	?And if I hadn't brought you in by now you might have well had died?  
	She stroked his pretty skin again and kissed and held him tight  
 	But instead of saying thanks the snake gave her a vicious bite  
  
Chorus    
  
            ?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!?  
            "Shut-up silly woman? said that reptile with a grin  
            "You knew darn well I was a snake before you took me in"  
                                                    
Chorus
