Did you ever stop and talk to a snake
And ask it why it crawls?
Did you ever wonder if it's lonely
Cause no one ever comes to call?
People run and they scream, at its sight
And try to kill it dead.
No wonder that poor little snake
Feels a sense of dread.
He tries to hiss and tell them
That he won't hurt them none.
But they won't stop and listen
Until his life is done.
