Mbongo Zoobistatoo (1/1/1912 / The Gambia)
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.
I bite de snakes, with my big pointy tooths
I stomp their heads wit my snake-stomping boots
Dey are my friends I love dem for lunch.
Der scaly skins I love to MUNCH!
