Rattlesnake said to the copperhead
"You give us vipers a real bad name"
You prey on the weakest, you fight for no reason
No wonder we get blamed
Copperhead laughed, said "Kiss my ass!
"You can bark but there ain't much bite"
"You rattle that tail, but it's fear I smell
"I think you're shaking out of fright"

Rattlesnake, Copperhead
Either one of them'll kill you dead
We stay hungry, they get fed
And don't pass the plate around
Lie by lie, cheat by cheat
Venom in smiling teeth
They just run those forked tongues
And the whole world's burning down

Copperhead said to the rattlesnake
"If you ever wanna make it rain
"We could team up, be twice as tough
"Fear will be our game"
Rattlesnake said to the copperhead
"Y'know we were the original sin
"And I bet you my rattle against your copper
That the bitch takes the apple again

Rattlesnake, Copperhead
Either one of them'll kill you dead
We stay hungry, they get fed
And don't pass the plate around
Lie by lie, cheat by cheat
Venom in smiling teeth
They just run those forked tongues
And the whole world's burning down

Rattlesnake said to the copperhead
"Ain't no way they'd win
"'Cause the mice are sheep and the shepherd's asleep"
And the copperhead said "Amen"
