"Boa Constrictor" as written by and Shel Silverstein....
I'm being swallowed by a boa constrictor
I'm being swallowed by a boa constrictor
I'm being swallowed by a boa constrictor
And I don't like it very much!

Oh no, oh no, he swallowed my toe, he swallowed my toe
Oh gee, oh gee, he's up to my knee, he's up to my knee
Oh fiddle, oh fiddle, he's reached my middle, he's reached my middle
Oh heck, oh heck, he's up to my neck, he's up to my neck
Oh dread, oh dread, he swallowed my schlirppp!

    General CommentI love this song. My father would sing this song to me each night before bedtime. When I sing this song, it makes me smile and remember a simpler time in my life.
