De Snakes

De snakes to de left, de snakes to de right.
De snakes are following me day and night.
I want to eat dem, to fry dem fo meal…
I want dem to bite me on my heel.

Der fangs so sharp, so pointy and shiney,
Der fangs dey bite me on my hiney…
I want to pull dem, and take all their venom,
To put my golden dental fillings in ‘em.

[Hata Bildir]
