GUEST,Pete Peterson Songs & Rhymes That Mention Snakes (127* d) RE: Songs & Rhymes That Mention Snakes 14 Jul 06

Does anybody besides me remember the late (and sorely missed) Jonathan Eberhart singing his own composition "Reptile Reel" ?? The refrain (apologies in advance for 15 years of Folk Process in my head) went:

Reptiles, reptiles, got 'em by the score
Rattlesnakes and garden snakes parading by my door
Put a 'gator in your garter and cobra in your creel
If you want to raise a ruckus with the Reptile Reel

Before posting I searched DT (no hits) and Googled on Jonathan's name-- no luck. There wre some 3-4 verses each one more outrageous than the previous. Would love to reconstruct that one. . .
