lyrics

On her way to work one morning down the path alongside the lake

A tender hearted woman saw a poor half frozen snake

His pretty coloured 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 up all cozy in a curvature of silk

And laid him by the fireside with some honey and some milk

She hurried home from work that night and as soon as she arrived

She found that pretty snake she'd taken in had been 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 and then she kissed and held him tight

But Instead of saying thanks that 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 bit 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
