Baby Python

When you meet me, I'll surprise you
In your garden, on your pillow
You will wrap me all around you
'round your shoulders, down your wrists

I'm a baby python, baby, my love is pure

When we're older, you'll be calmer
Won't be nervous, won't be tense
When I whisper your sweet name,
You'll feel the shivers down your wrists

I'm a baby python, baby, my love is pure

You will get to know my patterns
I will learn to hold your breath
I will shed my skin around you
I will curl, and I will hiss

I'm a baby python, baby, my love is pure

We will have no secrets, baby
Just a joke only you and I know
I can be your bracelet, maybe
You can be my chariot home

I'll amaze you with my stories
I will sniff you with my tongue
When you wave good-bye as your taxi pulls away,
Will your blood run cold like mine?
