Lyrics: For all of you who are trying to overcome your fear of spiders and/or snakes!
Spiders and snakes, spiders and snakes
I’m gonna learn to love them, no matter how long it takes
Some snakes eat insects; some eat rodents too
If they’re in your garden, they’re probably helping you
Most snakes won’t bite anyone; of course there’s some that do
But if you do not bother them, they will not bother you
Spiders catch bugs in their webs - this is what I’ve been taught
Some of the strands are sticky, and some of them are not
Spiders have eight legs; they have eight eyes too
They’d rather munch on insects than take a bite of you!
Some people don’t like spiders; some people don’t like snakes
But if they knew how important they were, what a difference that would make.
