"Spiders And Snakes"

(As recorded by Jim Stafford)
JIM STAFFORD
DAVID BELLAMY

I remember when Mary Lou said, "You wanna walk me home from school?"
Well I said yes I do
She said I don't have to go right home
And I would kinda like to be alone some if you would
I said me too
And so we took a stroll and wound up down by the swimming hole
And she said do what you want to do
I got silly and found a frog in the water by a hollow log
And I shook it at her and I said, "This frog's for you." She said,

I don't like spiders and snakes
And that ain't what it takes to love me
You fool, you fool
I don't like spiders and snakes
And that ain't what it takes to love me
Like I wanna be loved by you

Well I think of that girl from time to time, I call her up when I got a dime
I say, "Hello baby. She say, "Ain't you cool."
Said, "Do you remember when, and would you like to get together again"
She said "I'll see you after school"
I was shy and so for awhile most of my love was touch and smile
So she said, "Come on over here."
I was nervous as you might guess
Still looking for something to slip down her dress
And she said, "Let's make it perfectly clear." She said

I don't like spiders and snakes
And that ain't what it takes to love me
You fool, you fool
I don't like spiders and snakes
And that ain't what it takes to love me
Like I wanna be loved by you
