SNAKES, SNAILS AND PUPPYDOGS' TAILS Alma Cogan - 1964 I wanted you to love me Had to know what was on your mind I went to a gypsy woman Just to help this heart of mine She bent down in a corner She said, ďI know what to do I mixed it up this mornin' I must have been expectin' youĒ Itís made of snakes, snails And puppydogs' tails Things that you donít know Itís made of old wine, turpentine Ratís blood, taste good Mix it up and then I stir it slow I wanted you to love me Had to hear you say it too I went to a gypsy woman And asked her what to do She gave me some love potion Said to put it in your tea I saw your face go red and hot Then watched it turn in on me Itís made of snakes, snails Puppydogs' tails Things that you donít know Itís made of old wine, turpentine Ratís blood, taste good Mix it up and then I stir it slow I wanted you to love me So I did what the gypsy said When I woke up this morning I saw you lying in bed I went back to the gypsy Asked what did she do She said, ďIím sorry, honey But I have to have my fun tooĒ Itís made of snakes, snails Puppydogs' tails Things that you donít know Itís made of old wine, turpentine Ratís blood taste good Mix it up and then I stir it slow I wanted you to love me I wanted you to love me I wanted you to love me I wanted you to love me I wanted...........FADE (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - December 2011)
