Lyrics

Snake Ate My Radio

Back to all the words

Here I sit all on mine own
Chewing on some old chicken bones
He popped up right out of the ground
That old snake ate my radio
He slithered right up to me
Tickled my ear, as you please
He licked his snakey lips
That old snake ate my radio
They say rock and roll won’t save your soul
I don’t know nothing about no soul
I don’t have to worry about it anyway
That old snake ate my radio


Only news that I get now
Comes from inside the snake, low down
I hear it when he opens his mouth
That snake ate my radio
I only hear what he wants me to hear
The rest of the time it ain’t real clear
I think there’s something he doesn’t want me to hear
That old snake ate my radio
They say rock and roll won’t save your soul
I don’t know nothing about all that
I don’t have to worry about it anyway
That old snake ate my radio


I don’t know why the snake ate my radio
He’s got a taste for static, tubes, and the local weather
Lock your doors and pull the shades
That old snake will eat your radio
He’s got an endless appetite for radios
Anything noisy that hisses a lot
Look out now, it’s dead air
That old snake will eat your radio
They say rock and roll won’t save your soul
I don’t know nothing about your soul
It doesn’t matter anyhow
That old snake will eat your radio


He ate every radio in the world
All of them, every single radio
I said, what you gonna do now you ate all the radios
He said, get ready boy, I’m coming for your banjo
That old snake ate my radio
