The Mongoose And The Snake

This song is by Cherry Poppin' Daddies and appears on the album Susquehanna (2008).

This is the house where they used to be lovers,
The real estate agent has closed
He sits with himself in his car for a moment
It's stuffed with confusion, like it's sick with everything he owns

Hey!
Another cold reminder of the heat, my friend
Hey!
Or just a thrown off comment that could knock her off her feet again

Hey!
Well, don't apologize
Hey!
And no compromise
You know that neither one will back down and never will break...

The Mongoose and the Snake

This was dream that they thought they believed in,
This was the prison they chose
Dying inside is a smile's anaconda
It's squeezing them senseless 'til they choked up their black plastic rose

Hey!
Another cold reminder of the heat, my friend
Hey!
Or just a thrown off comment that could knock her off her feet again

Hey!
Well, don't apologize
Hey!
And no compromise
You know that neither one will back down and never will break...

Time rushes by,
Believe me
No ties that bind
Come easy
We're drowning victims of this agony,
This ecstasy...
You versus me

Time rushes by
And in the
Blink of an eye,
You wither
Rich talk gets followed up by
A straight faced hypocrisy

Up 'til the time he was drunk and he spit in her face...

The Mongoose and the Snake...
The Mongoose and the Snake...
The Mongoose and the Snake...
The Mongoose and the Snake...
