  • Song Lyrics:
    Baby snakes

    Late at night is when they come out

    Baby snakes

    I'm sure you know what I'm talkin' about
    Pink 'n' wet
    They make the best kind of pet

    Baby, baby snaaaaakes

    Looked around an' there's a couple
    right near me

    Baby snakes

    Maybe I think they can probably hear me
    Pink 'n' wet
    I'll take all I can get

    Baby, baby, baby snaaaaaaaaakes...yeah

    They live in a ho-ho-hole (tiny hole)
    that is usually empty (usually empty, tiny too)
    They live by a code (dit dit, dit dit, dit dit, dit dit)
    That is usually SMPTE
    Which stands for
    Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers

    But maybe I think
    that is what keeps them in sync
    They're wet and they're pink
    I think I'll give 'em a, give 'em a, give 'em a drink

    Baby snaaaaaaaaaaakes
