Lyrics

You know they call my girl The Snake Charmer
Here she comes rising with the yellow dawn
You know I would do nothing to ever harm her
I guess that I’ve loved you for too long

You know they call my girl The Worm Tamer
She cracks lightning like a vipers tongue
She leaves me every night and who can blame her
I guess that I’ve loved you for too long

For too long!
For too long!

You know they call my girl The Serpent Wrangler
Eating inchworms down the bill-a-bong
I spent all last night trying to untangle her
I guess that I’ve loved you for too long

For too long!
For too long!

You know they call my baby The Mambo Rider
I cry storms of tears till the rising of the dawn
You know I’m only happy when I’m inside her
I guess that I’ve just loved you for too long

For too long!
For too long!

Well my baby calls me the Loch Ness Monster
Two great big humps and then I’m gone
But actually I am the Abominable Snowman
And I guess I’ve loved you for too long
