Don't Ever Step On a Snake

Excellent vocabulary in this one! Great for older preschoolers and beyond.



When you are walking in the bush
Please stay on the track
And never wander through the undergrowth
Cos if you're not observant
You might tread on a serpent
Which could be quite unpleasant for you both
(for you both)
I've assessed the situation,
and I simply want to say
Be cautious when you're in his habitat
Though he's not aggressive
He's inclined to be possessive
And you can hardly blame a snake for that
(snake for that)

Chorus:
Don't ever step on a snake
Or you're making a big mistake
For the sake of your protection
I suggest you change direction
Get out of there for good, for goodness sake
Don't ever step on a snake
The surprise may be more than he can take
And you'd feel the same way too
If someone stepped on you
While you're lying in the sunshine half awake
Be kind to old Joe Blake
Never ever step upon a snake

Have you ever wondered
What it's like to be a snake
And have to slip and slide along the ground
It really can't be funny, to be stuck there on your tummy
Without a pair of legs to get you round
(get you round)
So you see it isn't easy
To be so misunderstood
Try to see it from his point of view
It's really rather sad
When the whole world thinks you're bad
But I don't really hate Joe Blake, do you
(Joe Blake, do you)

Chorus:
Don't ever step on a snake
Or you're making a big mistake
For the sake of your protection
I suggest you change direction
Get out of there for good, for goodness sake
Don't ever step on a snake
The surprise may be more than he can take
And you'd feel the same way too
If someone stepped on you
While you're lying in the sunshine half awake
Be kind to old Joe Blake
Never ever step upon
Never ever step upon
Never ever step upon a snake
