“It’s Not Simple Being a Snake”

© 2009 Eve & Mare



It’s not simple being a snake

It’s not satisfactory

I slither around with my stomach on the ground

And people might step on me


I’m not scary don’t you see

I’m quite social after all

You’ll see my sweet smile and in a little while

I’m certain we’ll be having a ball


I could charm the party with my song

In no time you’ll be hissing right along like this


(hissing sounds)


It’s not simple being a snake

But with courteous company

I’m sure we can share a soiree so rare

A gracious revelry


Let me charm the party with my song

Won’t you be a dear and sing along like this


(hissing sounds)


It’s not simple being a snake
