“You said that love was the one thing that you couldn’t give me right now
And then touched my hand and your sequin dress rolled off your back like a snake skin
There’s two of us in here but only one of us is having any fun
And the damage is done
And you shield my eyes while you suck me dry like a rattle snake does
Reptile style
You brought me poison apples on a silver tray
Reptile style
Well you broke my heart and you slit it away

You said finding good help is hard
Then you handed me a business card
That said all good things must pass
And the adress just said in the grass
Then you slid you hand into my shirt
Said carefull you might get hurt
When the whole clouds turn to green with envy
As you sank your teeth right in me

Reptile style
You brought me poison apples on a silver tray
Reptile style
Well you broke my heart and you slit it away

You said that love was the one thing that you couldn’t give me right now
And then touched my hand and your sequin dress rolled off your back like a snake skin
There’s two of us in here but only one of us is having any fun
And the damage is done
And you shield my eyes while you suck me dry like a snake does
Reptile style
You brought me poison apples on a silver tray
Reptile style
Well you broke my heart and you slit it away
You slit it away
And you slit it away
Slit it away
