Snake oil is what your'e selling me
Snake oil is what you're giving to me

Snakeskin shoes upon your feet
Walkin' around town talkin' sweet
Selling oil, selling snake oil
Briefcase full of diamond rings
Suicide Jack and pair of Kings
Selling oil, selling snake oil
Well they're telling you this and selling you that
Trying to tell everybody just where it's at
In a field where the dust and smoke gets in your eyes

Snake Oil is what you're selling me
Snake Oil is what you're giving to me

Well it looks alright up on the main street
In the basement there's a greasy machine
Selling oil, selling snake oil
Well go buy your shares of the company
Big money comes from you and me
Selling oil, selling snake oil
While they're givin' you this, and givin' you that
Trying to tell everybody just where it's at
The smile is just a smokescreen for the lies

Snake Oil is what you're sellin me
Snake Oil is what you're giving to me

They may say the stuff is true
I know better and so do you
