LyricsEdit

(Everybody ready? Uh yeah! Mmhmm.)
Sun melts everything down, and the hills are reduced to nothing
The whole house shakes, and you can see that the coach is coming
You lean down and you pick up the small soft eggs in the dust outside my door
I hold them in my hands, they are warm and the air is warming up now

I've got a message for you, if I could only remember
I've got a message for you, but you're gonna have to come and get it
La la la la la la la la, la la la la la la la la

Ever since I came here, all I could think about is water
Last night they brought the fat lamb in from the fold 
But I couldn't bring myself to do anything about it
I remember California, I remember Malibu
I remember the states and the names of the cities but I don't remember you

and I've got a message for you, if I could only remember
I've got a message for you, but you're gonna have to come and get it
I've got a message for you, I’ve got a message for you, 2 3 4
La la la la la la la la, la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la, la la la la la la la la
Yeah!
Whoo
Huh-huh-huh huh huh
(Laughter)

Comments by John Darnielle About this SongEdit

  • "There is an Egyptian snake out on the loose from the Bronx Zoo. [applause] Everyone is on the side of the snake. We, we animal rights people are making strides -- everybody is pro-snake. Somebody -- any band worth their salt, uh, who's coming through next week should, like, learn to play 'Union of the Snake' by Duran Duran and that will be [inaudible]. This is, uh, sort of like a love song from the Egyptian snake's brother, the Sinaloan milk snake." -- 2011-03-29 - Bowery Ballroom - New York, NY
