Description: Pythons in the Everglades

A ranger in The Everglades was bragging he had made some raids.
He captured seven pythons by himself.
I bellowed, “That was quite a feat! A record that cannot be beat.”
He grinned and boasted, “This year I got twelve!”

A hundred thirty-seven pounds, a Burmese Python makes its rounds.
It measures more than seventeen feet long.
Michael Phelps it can out-swim. Outrun and out-climb Jungle Jim.
The Everglades has got its own King Kong!

Rats and mice and gators, be careful where you go,
For Burmese Pythons stalk you – in case you didn’t know.
A hundred thousand evils are lurking in the grass,
Fear not, we aim to hunt ‘em down and kick some Burmese ass.

You folks that live in old Hong Kong may think this is an offensive song.
There the snake’s protected by the law.
But a python killed a baby here, the coroner’s report was clear.
You wouldn’t want to see just what he saw.

A senator from our great state has weighed in on the python’s fate,
“A hundred thousand snakes have got to die!
We’ll hunt ‘em down, we’ll flush ‘em out, before some tourist starts to shout
Florida’s a spot you must pass by!”

Rats and mice and gators, be careful where you go,
For Burmese Pythons stalk you – in case you didn’t know.
A hundred thousand evil snakes are lurking in the grass,
Fear not, we aim to hunt ‘em down and kick some Burmese ass.
