REPTILE STORE

Won't you come down with me
we'll go to the reptile store
Gonna look at the lizards,
turtles, snakes, and bugs
Maybe we'll take a couple lizards home
maybe we'll leave those lizards alone
Won't you come down with me
we'll go to the reptile store

Well, I know a kid who
like to go to the reptile store
He said it happened to him
a time or two before
Five minutes after he walked through the door
he was crawlin' on his belly like a snake on the floor
Well, I know a kid who like to go to the reptile store

And there once were a couple of turtles
named Andy and Pete
When it came to playing checkers they say
they couldn't be beat
Maybe when we go to the store
we're gonna learn just a little bit more
about the legend of a couple of turtles
named Andy and Pete, oh yeah!

Ooh ooh,...

Now deep down in the swamps of Georgia
there's a snake in the tree
and that black racer snake will chase ya;
he's as mean as can be
So boy you'd better listen to me,
you see the snake in the tree you better let him be
Deep down in the swamps of Georgia there's a snake in the tree

Now the alligator is the biggest reptile around
Swimmin' in the swampy waters
are where they are found
I once knew a poodle who stood too close
I heard a splash, turned around, that poodle was toast!
I said the alligator is the biggest reptile around

So you better just look out!

So won't you come down with me
we'll go to the reptile store
we're gonna look at the lizards,
turtles, snakes and bugs
Maybe we'll take a couple lizards home
maybe we'll leave those lizards alone
Won't you come down with me
we'll go to the reptile store
