LYRICS
1.
    Too dangerous to keep
    Too feeble to let go
    And you want to bite the hand
    Shoulda stopped this long ago

Chours
    Go now, you've been set free
    Another month or so you'll be poisoning me
    With your lovely smile
    I see you slither away with your skin and your tail
    Your flickering tounge and your rattling scales
    Like a real reptile

2.
    Had you coiled around my arm
    How could you ever know
    How I loved your diamond eyes
    But that was long ago

Chorus

Solo

3.
    And I should have believed Eve
    She said we had to blow
    She was the apple of my eye
    It wasn't long ago

Chorus
