Baby snakes
Late at night is when they come out
Baby snakes
Sure you know what Im talkin about
Pink n wet
They make the best kinda pet

Looked around
An there's a couple right near me
Baby snakes
Maybe I think they can probably hear me
Pink n wet
Ill take all I can get
Sna-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-kes, yeah

They live in a ho-ho-hole
(tiny hole)
That is usually empty
(usually empty, tiny too)
They live by a code
(dit dit dit dit)
That is usually smpte
Which stands for
Society of motion picture & television engineers
Maybe I think
That is what keeps them in sync
They're wet n they're pink
I think I'll give em a, give em a,
Give em a drink

Baby sna-a-a-a-a-akesss

    Movie Baby Snakes gives you a good view into the music and magic that is Zappa.
    The film was launched in the theaters on December 21, 1979, on home video in 1987 and on DVD in 2003. It is a concert film (Halloween concert in 1977)with one of FZ's best bands of the 70's with some extremely eye-popping clay animation sequences by animator Bruce Bickford thrown in between.
