Belle Stars – The Snake lyrics

On her way to work one mornin', down the path beside 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)
Take me in for heaven's sake (Come on in)
Take me in, tender woman", sighed the snake

She wrapped him up all cozy in a coverture of silk
And she laid him by the fireside with some honey and some milk
She hurried home from work that night
As soon as she arrived, she found that pretty snake she'd taken in had been revived
"Take me in, tender woman (Tender women) (Take me in)
Take me in for heaven's sake (For heaven's sake) (Come on in)
Take me in, tender woman (Tender women)", 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 viscous bite
"Take me in, tender woman (Tender women) (Take me in)
Take me in for heaven's sake (For heaven's sake) (Come on in)
Take me in, tender woman (Tender women)", sighed the snake

"But I saved you," cried the woman
"And you've bitten me, but why?
You know your bite is poisonous and now I'm gonna die"
"Aww 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 (Tender women) (Take me in)
Take me in for heaven's sake (For heaven's sake) (Come on in)
Won't you take me in, tender woman (Tender women)", sighed the snake
Come on "Take me in (Snakes), tender woman (Why?), sighed the snake
Take me in (Snakes), (Tender woman) (Why?)
(Snakes, why?) I can be so good to you baby
If you only take me in (Take me in) (Snakes, why?) (Tender women)
(Snakes, why?) Well that's just, hm
Come on and (Take me in) (Snakes, why) (Tender women)
Take me in
Take me in (Snakes, why) tender women, sighed the snake
Come on and take me in (Snakes, why) (Tender women)
