Lyrics

I have a sad sad story
I’ll tell it in a song
I found a baby python in the woods behind my home
I kept it in a coffee can underneath my bed
I walked my baby daily on a leash made of thread

For seven months I kept this up dreaming of the day
Of walking into show-and-tell and with a ten foot python snake
But I made a big mistake (or a small one I should say)

My baby snake is just a worm
The vet just checked. It is confirmed
By now he should be slinking but all he does is squirm
My baby snake is just a worm

My friend and I made a snake cage from chicken wire and sticks
We worked all weekend on it.
This news just makes us sick
That cage won’t keep a worm in.
Never could and never will
A worm’ll squirm right through it and disappear into the silt

Now my friend he’s got a fishing pole and a look I’ve never seen
He wants to take him fishing if you know just what I mean

My baby snake is just a worm
The vet just checked.
It is confirmed
By now he should be slithering around but all he does is squirm
My baby snake is just a worm

Bridge:
I don’t just want a baby snake I need it.
And when I get a real one at least I’ll have something to feed it
(Nah I’m just kidding about that)

But my baby snake is just a worm
The vet just checked. It is confirmed
By now he should be slinking but all he does is squirm
My baby snake is just a worm
My baby snake is just a worm (yes he is)
My baby snake is just a little ol’ worm
