LYRICS 
1. 
    Too dangerous to keep 
    Too feeble to let go 
    And you want to bite the hand 
    Shoulda stopped this long ago 
 
Chours 
    Go now, you've been set free 
    Another month or so you'll be poisoning me 
    With your lovely smile 
    I see you slither away with your skin and your tail 
    Your flickering tounge and your rattling scales 
    Like a real reptile 
 
2. 
    Had you coiled around my arm 
    How could you ever know 
    How I loved your diamond eyes 
    But that was long ago 
 
Chorus 
 
Solo 
 
3. 
    And I should have believed Eve 
    She said we had to blow 
    She was the apple of my eye 
    It wasn't long ago 
 
Chorus
