  • Two bit sniper
    Kiss the viper
    Lie in wait as you take the bait
    Feel you getting nearer
    And I'm coiled up aiming to bite

    The clock starts ticking
    When you start gunning
    I strike so fast
    You won't see me coming

    Get ready, ready for a snake bite
    Get ready, ready for a snake bite

    I'll kill your will
    You can run till
    There's no escape when you taste my venom
    I'll track you down till there's no place left to hide

    The clock starts ticking
    When you start gunning
    I'll strike so fast
    You won't see me coming

    Get ready, ready for a snake bite
    Get ready, ready for a snake bite

    Undertaker meet you maker
    I'm cutting loose and let fly
    Double dealer moving in nearer
    It's time to say goodbye

    Feel my poison
    Your misfortune
    Flowing through you paralyzing
    Every vein in your body
    Till your brain's ready to explode

    The clock starts ticking
    When you start gunning
    I'll strike so fast you won't see me coming

    Get ready, get ready, ready for a snake bite
    Get ready, get ready, ready for a snake bite

    You won't see me coming

    Get ready, get ready, ready for a snake bite
    Get ready, get ready, ready for a snake bite

    You won't see me coming Writer/s: GLENN RAYMOND TIPTON, RICHARD FAULKNER, ROBERT HALFORD
