Spiders and Snakes – Jim Stafford

Verse:1

G
I remember when Mary Lou said,

‘You wanna walk me home from school’,
C G
And I said, ‘Yes, I do’,
G
She said, ‘I don’t have to go right home,
C
And I would like to kinda be alone, some with you boy,
G
I said, ‘Me, too’.
D
And so we took a stroll,

Wound up down by the swimmin’ hole,
C G
And she said, ‘Do what you want to do’,
D
I got silly and I found a frog,

In the water by a hollow log,
C
And I shook it at her,
G
And I said ‘This frog’s for you’, And she said.

Chorus:
G
I don’t like spiders and snakes,
C G
And that ain’t what it takes to love me, You fool, you fool,
G
I don’t like spiders and snakes,
C
And that ain’t what it takes to love me,
G G C D , D D, C G
Like I want to be loved by you’.

Verse:2
G
Well, I think of that girl from time to time,

I call her up when I got a dime,
C G
I say, “Hello, baby’, She says, ‘Ain’t you cool’,
G
I say, ‘Do you remember when,

And would you like to get together again,
C G
She says, ‘I’ll see you after school.
D
I was shy and so for a while,

Most of my love was touch and a smile,
C G
Til she said, ‘Come on over here’,
D
I was nervous as you might guess,

Still looking for somethin’ and she slipped out of her dress,
C G
And she said, ‘Let’s make it perfectly clear, And she said.

CHORUS:
G
I don’t like spiders and snakes,
C G
And that ain’t what it takes to love me, You fool, you fool,
G
I don’t like spiders and snakes,
C
And that ain’t what it takes to love me,
G G C D D D C G
Like I want to be loved by you’.
