Grispapi and Mr. Snake

from Variants by Amy Denio / Spoot Music

subscriber exclusive


Inspired by my beau Jon and his adorable ball python who escaped from the terrarium on the day that I created this song.

I put his name through my musical alphabet, and set to work, shaping the random notes into something musical.

Produced in November, 2021.


Gris papi
I agree papi

Grispapi, a dapper whippersnapper
A tipper and a tapper with a zipper and a zapper
Grispapi, a lover like no other
Doing his best to withstand the test of time and
leave behind
Ego's greedy slime

I love you because to thyself you are true
Just us two make a crew
Adventures feed our souls with food

Stay calm and don't freak out
When Mr. Snake takes a walkabout
His nature is to sleep and eat
All the mouse muffins wriggling at his feet
His feet
What feet?
