Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale,
A tale of a Reptiles Alive trip
That started from our headquarters
Aboard our reptile van – ship.
The mate was a mighty nature photography man,
The skipper brave with snakes.
2 passengers + 8 live animals set sail that day
To perform a 1 hour reptile show, a 1 hour show.
The weather started getting rough,
The pollen was really bad and wind knocked trees on the ground,
If not for the courage of the fearless RA crew
The show would not go on, the show would not go on.
The ship set ground on the shore of this charted Potomac River isle
Jon Kerr too
The Ferry boatman, his name is Joe
The animal show stars
The black rat snake and the rest
Here on Sycamore Isle.
So this is the tale of the show we performed
It was on Saturday May 8
We had the best of times,
Even though loading was a truly uphill climb.
The first mate and the Skipper too
Did their very best,
To perform a fantastic live animal show
In the Potomac River island nest.
There were phones and lights, but no motor cars,
Lots of luxuries,
Not really like Robinson Crusoe,
Not exactly as primitive as can be.
So join us here each week my freinds,
You’re sure to get a smile,
From all the people and animals,
Here at Reptiles Alive!
