I knew you were a snake when I picked you up
When you started hanging around
I should have known it was a big mistake
When I heard that rattlin' sound

You spend half your day running away
The other half chasing me down
You make me jumpy, jitter and shake
When I hear that rattlin' sound

Your love is hard to take
Old habits are hard to break
I thought we were cool, I thought we were jake
But you can't get close to a rattlesnake

I can't quit you Baby, I'm under your spell
But I've got to put you down
I was sleeping now I'm wide awake
'Cause I heard that rattlin' sound

Your love is hard to take
Old habits are hard to break
I thought we were cool, I thought we were jake
But you can't get close to a rattlesnake

You're running cold and hot, do you love me or not
Slithering all over town
My nerves are jangled, my soul's at stake
'Cause I heard that rattlin' sound

I knew you were a snake when I picked you up
I could have left you on the ground
I should have known my heart would break
When I heard that rattlin' sound

Shake Shake Rattlesnake
