spider spider sitting tight
in the dark beyond the light
waiting for the night to start
then to play a spiders part
creeping crawling spinning webs
watching people in their beds
swinging down and climbing up
looking for a bug to sup
now if you lie there really still
and watch a spider do his drill
then you might learn how spiders work
to see him catch a bug's a perk
there was that old time scottish king
who watched a spider doing his thing
and learned a lesson through and through
of how to fight red white and blue
and send the bastards scurrying back
in terror of the scots attack
i don't mind spiders, well not much
they scare me less than snakes and stuff
of course they bite, sometimes we die
but does it help to wonder why
a spider does what he must do
he sometimes moves right in with you
and lives beside you quite unknown
and then he bites...his covers blown!
