Words: Holly
Tune: Streets of Laredo

As I slithered out in the garden of Eden
As I went slith’ring round Eden one day
I spied a young couple all wrapped up in nothing
All of their naughty bits out on display.

I said to the short one, I see you are mammals
You both have nipples for feeding your young
I have no nipples, for I am a reptile
I have bright scales and a flattering tongue.

I said to the tall one, I see you are manly
You have that dangly thing down by your thigh
Would you oblige me by wearing this fig leaf?
I feel embarrassed, though I don’t know why.

Let me present you this shiny red apple
You can both share it with your buddy Steve
It will give you wisdom, it is psychedelic
Take a bite, Adam, and don’t you blame Eve.
