about

Stevie's version: John Voight actually escapes the Anaconda by cutting his way out of the snake stomach. He feels kinda bad, and probably kills the protagonists later just to feel better. End Credits.

Michael disagrees about all of this, and claims that it is inspired by a Shel Silverstein poem turned children’s song. Michael is wrong.

lyrics

The eyes, the neck, the serpent skin
The smell of poison medicine
This python's python’s, dropping his chin

First fist then wrist then everything.
Up to my elbows and then in
Oh No, Oh No! Its Swallowing Me

Don't stare, don't stare don't look at it
Don't catch it's glare its coming in
Oh No, Oh No! its ready to strike

I got it. I got it bad. I got it coming for me
Stop it. Stop it now

I know that where I go is deep inside
I can feel the fear you hide. I won't die.
I know what I say when I say that I'm gonna
cut you in your belly with a knife
Pry apart your stomach wide, step outside,
knowing that I have escaped my destruction

The eyes, the neck, the serpent skin
The store of poison medicine
This python's meaner, meaner than me

First fist then wrist then everything
Up to my elbows and then in
Oh No, Oh No! Its Swallowing Me

I got it. I got it bad. I got it coming for me
Stop it. Stop it now. Don’t stop it I will concede

I know that where I go is deep inside
I can feel the fear you hide. I won't die
I know what I say when I say that I'm gonna
cut you in your belly with a knife
Pry apart your stomach wide, step outside,
knowing that I have escaped my destruction

Sadly I will look and I will cry
Watch you as your stomach writhes, and you die
What have we done? This was never intended
But I can’t regret. I would not die
We’re all trying to survive, live our lives
longer than others, withstanding forever
