Lyrics Quiz: Snakes

Celebrate Whacking Day belatedly (it's May 10th) by taking this quiz.

  1. Jodie wears a hat, although it hasn't rained for six days. She says a girl needs a gun these days, hey, on account of all the rattlesnakes.
  2. Wiggle like a snake, wobble like a duck.
  3. ...Where snakes in the grass are absolutely free.
  4. That's great, it starts with an earthquake, birds and snakes, an aeroplane.
  5. You're looking good, just like a snake in the grass. One of these days you're gonna break your glass.
  6. Well, I knew that snake was my own sweet dad, from a worn out picture that my mother had, and I knew that scar on his cheek and his evil eye.
  7. You’re boned like a saint, with the conciousness of a snake.
  8. The snake is long, seven miles. Ride the snake. He's old, and his skin is cold.
  9. Yeah, I've got a tombstone hand in a graveyard mine. Just twenty-two, baby, I don't mind dying. Snakeskin shoes, baby. Put them on your feet. Got the goodtime music and the Bo Diddley beat.
  10. Sister got bit by a copperhead snake in the woods behind the house. Nobody was home so I grabbed her foot and I sucked that poison out. Sister got better in a month or two when the swelling, it went down. But I'd started out my teenage years with that poison in my mouth.

Well I was walking down the street just having a-think,
When a snake of a guy gave me an evil wink.
