SNAKE IN THE GRASS  - Allegra Broughton & Sam Page ©2017

 

I was walking down the road, the sun was shining bright

Minding my own business, I’m not looking for a fight.

Heard a strange voice calling me, I stopped to look around

From out of nowhere I heard a dreadful sound

Crackle, crackle, crackle I can hear you creep

Doggin’ at my footsteps, tryin’ to push me in the deep

 

There’s a snake in the grass There’s a snake in the grass

You’d better run, you’d better run fast ‘Cause there’s a snake in the grass

 

I went on vacation just to get some R and R

Hop aboard an aeroplane and jump into a car

Miles and miles from everywhere, a paradise I found

But from right behind me, I heard a nasty sound

Rattle, rattle, rattle You are scratchin’ at my door

Tapping on windows and crawling ‘cross the floor

 

There’s a snake in the grass There’s a snake in the grass

You’d better run, you’d better run fast ‘Cause there’s a snake in the grass

 

Now I’m sleeping safe at home, a’lyin’ in my bed

Dreaming about sugar plums dancing in my head

You’d think here behind four walls that I’d be on safe ground

But stirrin’ in the covers, I heard a wicked sound

Rustle, rustle, rustle    I can see your beady eyes

Thought you had me hoodwinked, but baby, I got wise

 

‘Cause there’s a snake in the grass There’s a snake in the grass

You’d better run child, you’d better run fast ‘Cause there’s a snake in the grass

 

‘Cause there’s a snake in the grass There’s a snake in the grass

You’d better run child, you’d better run fast ‘Cause there’s a snake in the grass

You’d better run child, you’d better run fast ‘Cause there’s a snake in the grass
