Country and Western Invertebrate Drama


mr. and mrs. snail
are going their separate ways
he's is heading to the bar
to get a proper haze
she is off to her sister's place
way down in Tennessee
got herself a shotgun
and some sibling sympathy

they had been so much in love
but that was long ago
time had come between them
because they moved so slow
she had left the kitchen
back in '82
he sat thirty years at the table
without a single clue

(chorus)
oh, my lord, dear Doris
what a fool i've been
i took you for granted
that was my greatest sin
now my days are lonesome
just sitting doing time
what i'd give for just one more shot
to cover you in slime
cover in slime
cover in slime
what i'd give for just one more shot
to cover you in slime

damns, she was so sexy
he weren't bad himself
oozing in the forest
like two randy little elves
you may fancy yourself a lover
and boast about your art
but you ain't never gone down upon a snail
who bubbled up a fart

(repeat chorus)

mr. and mrs. snail
are going their separate ways
he's is heading to the bar
to get a proper haze
she is off to her sister's place
way down in Tennessee
got herself a shotgun
and some sibling sympathy

they had been so much in love
but that was long ago
time had come between them
because they moved so slow
she had left the kitchen
back in '82
he sat thirty years at the table
without a single clue
