Ok Yesssss I admit it I was in the Forbidden Apple tree.

Down in the Garden of Eden, there was Adam, Eve and Me.

Now both of them were naked, except for a little leaf to cover their modesty.

It’s lucky us Snakes are so thick skinned and dont Embarrasssss easily.


Now Eve she wore a Fig leaf, but I think Adams was a Plum.

As he had two big ones dangling down ripening the Sun

Eve whispered into Adam’s ear and his Leaf it began to rise.

Then a long pink snake with a big red head Popped up by surprise.


I think it was a type of Cobra because it soon began to spit.

But the Venom didn’t bother Eve, she just tightened up her grip.

Adam he was useless, the guy was one big whimp.

Eve struggled for 5 minutes more, until that snake went Limp.


The way she choked that poor old snake I thought she’d do the same to me.

So I just quickly Hisssssed off and slid up in the tree.

So I didn’t Tempt body I was Hiding out of Sight.

When Eve she plucked the Apple and Adam took the Bite.


At that moment all Hell broke loose and the Sky turned black

I’ll tell you Adam shit his Plum leaf and tried to stick the Apple back

But a wind it Swept through Eden, blew the Apples from the tree.

The tree just stood there barren and that’s when Eve she spotted me.


She said to Adam, “Hey don’t worry we can blame it on that snake.”

You call me Cold blooded, man that Bitch takes the cake.

Just because I speak with a forked tongue, I have too I’m a Snake.

It was those two Horny bastards that made the big mistake.


In the end they paid the price,

got banished out of Paradise.


But I don’t feel sorry for them.

It was me that came off worst.

For that Bitch yanked me out the tree.

To become History’s very first Snake-skin purse.
