What better song to listen to on World Snake Day? “Boa Constrictor” was written by Shel Silverstein.
Johhny Cash covered the song for his comedy album Everybody Loves A Nut in 1966.
The lyrics later appeared in a collection of poems, lyrics and stories called Where The Sidewalk Ends. first published in 1974.
I had this book myself as a child as well as the sequel, A Light In The Attic. I recommend booth books to any kid age 5-12. There is also a musical record to go with the first book.
