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
