Lyrics
Across in the glasses like a snake
And he follows every step she takes
He tracks her down on the way to school
And she thinks she's the sneaky fool
She wants to get her homework done
He wants to go and have some fun
The snake and the bookworm
The snake and the bookworm

She's trying to pass geography
And he's trying to kiss every girl he sees
Well she's got a test, she don't want to fail
And he's pulling on her ponytail
She's thinking about her education
He's thinking about his recreation
The snake and the bookworm
The snake and the bookworm

Well, the snake caught bookworm one fine day
Yeah and he wouldn't let her get away
Umm, man then he kissed her just one time
And a smoothing happened to his mind
Well, now he sings the deep run song
She's been studying the whole night long
The snake and the bookworm
The snake and the bookworm
The snake and the bookworm
