The Lyrics

Here's a story that I heard at a party on New Year's eve...
Did you see the snake that ate Jose?
He was so huge and long, and our good friend had lost his way
Did you see the snake that ate Jose?
We can't let that big monster get away

Going into the rainforest
Was a risk Jose agreed to face
But he turned into one big fat basket case
He went there to study lion scat
And the python stretched thirty feet --
Dispatched the man in seconds flat

We are going to miss our friend Jose
One hungry snake's abuse is no excuse to wreck one's day
Can't believe that snake could eat Jose
I'm going there to try to see why he would eat Jose

I have heard that it's a rumor
That pythons can swallow humans whole
It is true, and that reptile is in control
We must get him now before he strikes
Another human scientist
Who'll see that snake and holler "Yiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiikes!"

Going into that rainforest
Was a risk Jose agreed to face
But he turned into one big fat basket case
He went there to study lion scat
And the python stretched thirty feet
Dispatched the man in seconds flat

We will find the snake that ate Jose
Did you see the snake that ate Jose?
He should have stayed put in San Jose
Ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss

Is this something that happened on "Survivor"? Or is it the story of Ozzie Canseco's brother?

Thanks, everyone! It was necessary to make fun of this song in some way, since we live in San Jose. When our friends found out that we were moving up here, they insisted upon singing the song (many times), thinking that it was clever. Aaaaaargh! As far as the validity of the story, I have no idea. Some guys at a party were talking about this guy Jose, and all I could think about was writing a parody. Jeez!

San Jose? Well, you know what Woody Allen says: "A relationship is like a Shark. It has to keep moving or it dies." Or at least gets checked into the boards.
