I don't know who the male singer was that recorded this song. I don't even know the title, but the last time I heard it, it was sung on "northern exposure".
Chorus went as follows:
"take me in o tender woman,
take me in for heavens sake;
take me in on tender woman",
sighed the snake.
She clutched him to her bosom
you're so beautiful she cried;
'if I hadn't taken you in
by now you might have died'.
"O shut up, silly woman",
said that reptile with a grin;
"You knew darn well I was a snake
when you took me in".

I don't have the lyrics, but I remember that song from the sixties. There was a song called The Snake, recorded in 1968 by Al Wilson, which seems likely to be that one. Maybe someone has the lyrics to it.
