Lizard in PA

So, here’s a song about being a lizard in the cold, cold, northeast US.

And for those who may not notice, it is specifically

about a male Sceloporus undulatus in Pennsylvania.

 

 

Lizard in PA  (click here if the link above is not functional)

It’s cold outside

and I can’t move my muscles

cause my physiology won’t bring the heat,

but I’ll be fine.

 

My parietal eye will tell my future

by and by

and by the sun

I will move on,

when the winter’s gone.

 

I’m a lizard in PA

and I’m coming out today

to heat my bones

and eat a bug.

 

Heat my bones

Heat my bones

 

I’m a lizard in PA

and I’m coming out today

to heat my bones

and eat a bug.

 

I hope I find my mates

and set my territory straight

before I see a flash of blue

that comes to call,

I’ll fight um all.

 

Their push ups

don’t scare me

I’m sure they’re all one hemipene

shy of a clutch,

I’d bet my lunch.

 

Heat my bones

Heat my bones

 

I’m a lizard in PA

and I’m coming out today

to heat my bones

and eat a bug.

 

Heat my bones

Heat my bones

.Heat

……….my

……………….bones

and eat bug.
