Baby Snakes
Late at night is when they come out
Baby Snakes
Sure you know what I'm talkin' about
Pink 'n' wet
They make the best kinda pet
Baby
Baby
Snakes
I Look around
An' there's a couple right near me
Baby Snakes
Maybe I think they can probably hear me
Pink 'n' wet
I'll take all I can get
Baby
Baby
Baby Sna-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-kes, Yeah
They live in a ho-ho-hole
(Tiny hole)
That is usually empty
(Usually empty; tiny too)
They live by a code
(Dit dit dit dit)
That is usually SMPTE
Which stands for Society of Motion Picture & Television Engineers
Maybe I think
That is what keeps them in sync
They're wet 'n' they're pink
I think I'll give 'em a, give 'em a,
Give 'em a drink


Baby Sna-a-a-a-a-akesssss

    General CommentI think 'Baby Snakes' is a metaphor for audio tape hiss. Snakes hiss, and audio tape hiss (i.e. tape noise) is an ever present phenomenon with that technology, especially during very quiet or silent parts of audio tape recordings. (Loud volume recordings overpower the tape noise to our ears, even though the noise is still present, it isn't noticeable).

    The lyric "They live in a ho-ho-hole (Tiny hole) That is usually empty" is saying the hissing baby snakes emerge during the silent or quieter parts, which must have been a great frustration to FZ, so he's giving the problem a humorous personality - like gremlins in the machine.
