Liner Notes: 

I really like snakes so I thought I'd do a children's song.


Snake in the Grass
© 2020 Cindy Prince

I see something green!
Look closely in the grass
He just might make you laugh
It's a green snake!

I see something black
Pretty long, do you see
He's looking at you and me
It's a black snake!

Don't be too concerned
This is their home
They should be free to roam

I see something striped!
See how colorful he is
He's something not to miss
It's a milk snake!

I see something brown!
He's there on the rocks
No reason to be shocked
It's a Midland Brown snake!

Repeat chorus

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Cool idea. No need for kids to get all scared of snakes as long as they avoid the nasty ones. I have a lovely black snake that hangs around the yard sometimes. Good job.

Cool rhyming of the middle two lines of those stanzas. Gives me a definite feel and rhythm to the lyric. And I like that you didn't go all negative like I did.

I'm learning! This is cool -- describing snakes in a song. I used to not be afraid of them.

I like snakes a lot, too. Mainly black racers around our house.
Charming song! Kids should know about their native snakes.
