Song Description

A fractured children's pop song.


My Pet Snake

My pet snake (my pet snake)
His name was Jake (name was Jake)
Just like that football player.
He ate mice and baby birds
He grew big, scaly and long.

My pet snake (my pet snake)
Stayed in a cage (in a cage)
When we had our Sunday dinner.
Sometimes we let him out
And played snake toss with him.

My pet snake (my pet snake)
Disappeared (he disappeared)
One afternoon in early August.
Busted out the damn cage door.
Slunk into the bushes.

Had to call (had to call)
Snake Wrangler (Mr. Slick)
To go find my pet snake.
He found Jake in the neighbor's yard
Jake promptly bit him.

Snake Wrangler (Mr. Slick)
Had a knife (a big knife)
Stabbed Jake in the head
He stabbed Jake several times.
Until my Jake was dead.

Snake Wrangler
He was slick
Asked real nice
If he could have Jake as a trophy.
Thought it over for a while
I said that he could keep him.

I had one (only one)
Last request (best for last)
Could he take a picture?
Me and Jake forever twined
In death as it was in life.

My pet snake (my pet snake)
My pet snake (my pet snake)
My pet snake...
