lyrics

Now is the time
To slither like the snake
Upon the ground
With belly down.

Now is the time
To wander like the camel through
The desert dry.
One hump or two
One lump or two
Avoiding mines.

Now is the time
To shiver like the fieldmouse in
The barnhouse twine.
Curling up
Becoming small
That way it won't hurt to fall.

Now is the time
To slither like the snake
Upon the ground
With belly down.

Now is the time
To wander like the camel through
The desert dry.
One hump or two
One lump or two
Avoiding mines.

Now is the time
To shiver like the fieldmouse in
The barnhouse twine.
Curling up
Becoming small
That way I can see it all.
