THE SNAKE (Oscar Brown Jr.) Al Wilson Also recorded by: Belle Stars; Oscar Brown Jr.; The Mint Juleps; Johnny Rivers; Paula West. On her way to work one morning Down the path along side the lake A tender hearted woman saw a poor half frozen snake His pretty colored skin had been all frosted with the dew "Poor thing," she cried, "I'll take you in and I'll take care of you" "Take me in tender woman Take me in, for heaven's sake Take me in, tender woman," sighed the snake She wrapped him all cozy in a comforter of silk And laid him by her fireside with some honey and some milk She hurried home from work that night and soon as she arrived She found that pretty snake she'd taken to had bee revived "Take me in, tender woman Take me in, for heaven's sake Take me in, tender woman," sighed the snake She clutched him to her bosom, "You're so beautiful," she cried "But if I hadn't brought you in by now you might have died" She stroked his pretty skin again and kissed and held him tight Instead of saying thanks, the snake gave her a vicious bite "Take me in, tender woman Take me in, for heaven's sake Take me in, tender woman," sighed the snake "I saved you," cried the woman "And you've bitten me, but why? You know your bite is poisonous and now I'm going to die" "Oh shut up, silly woman," said the reptile with a grin "You knew damn well I was a snake before you took me in "Take me in, tender woman Take me in, for heaven's sake Take me in, tender woman," sighed the snake version II On her way to work one morning Down the path along side the lake A tender hearted woman saw a poor half frozen snake His pretty colored skin had been all frosted with the dew "Oh well," she cried, "I'll take you in and I'll take care of you" "Take me in tender woman Take me in, for heaven's sake Take me in, tender woman," sighed the snake Now she wrapped him all cozy in a coverture of silk And then laid him by the fireside with some honey and some milk Now she hurried home from work that night as soon as she arrived She found that pretty snake she'd taken to had been revived "Take me in, oh tender woman Take me in, for heaven's sake Take me in, tender woman," sighed the snake She clutched him to her bosom, "You're so beautiful," she cried "But if I hadn't brought you in, by now you might have died" Now she stroked his pretty skin again and then kissed and held him tight But instead of saying thanks, the snake gave her a vicious bite! "Take me in, oh tender woman Take me in for heaven's sake Take me in, tender woman," sighed the snake "Now I saved you," cried the woman And you've bit me, even why? And you know your bite is poisonous and now I'm going to die" "Ah shut up, silly woman," said that reptile with a grin “Now you knew darn well I was a snake before you brought me in Please, take me in, oh tender woman Take me in, for heaven's sake Take me in, tender woman," sighed the snake, sighed the snake “Take me in tender woman “Come on in you pretty snake… Come on in, yeah, come on in you pretty snake… (Contributed by Gary House - August 2007)
