KNEE DEEP IN GATORS
(Claire Ulanoff/Lynn Wilbanks/Ralph Friedrichsen)
Black water stretching far as you can see
Cottonmouths hanging from the cypress trees
Slapping dem skeeters off my neck
Something just slithered up against my leg...I?m
Knee deep in gators in this here swamp
They?re licking their lips like I?m filet mignon
But those big old toothy grins don?t scare me none
Us country girls know just what to do
When you?re knee deep in gators...make boots
Not every reptile lives in the ?Glades
There?s one at this bar that won?t go away
If he don?t back off, I?m telling you this
He?ll get a triple take down half nelson twist...
Two tone, hand sewn, can?t you see where this is goin?
But first, it gets worse, I really need a matching purse...
