LYRICS 1. Too dangerous to keep Too feeble to let go And you want to bite the hand Shoulda stopped this long ago Chours Go now, you've been set free Another month or so you'll be poisoning me With your lovely smile I see you slither away with your skin and your tail Your flickering tounge and your rattling scales Like a real reptile 2. Had you coiled around my arm How could you ever know How I loved your diamond eyes But that was long ago Chorus Solo 3. And I should have believed Eve She said we had to blow She was the apple of my eye It wasn't long ago Chorus -- Date: Sat, 1 Jul 1995 01:22:39 -0600 From: Enrique Zamudio Message-Id: <199507010722.BAA09593@amadeus.spin.com.mx> Tabs for "Reptile" by The Church transcribed by Enrique Zamudio Universidad Iberoamericana, Mexico zamudioe@risc.uia.mx Use a delay time of about 350 milliseconds for the first part.
