Carpet Python

Carpet Python – from the Animal Songs series is moderately fast, with a catchy, jazzy tune in G minor using sliding scales to imitate the sound and movements of the snake. The words are mildly humorous and appealing particularly to younger children of Primary school age.

The children are required to hiss like a snake, and emphasise the ‘S’ sounds on the words “Slithering and Sliding in your Ceiling” throughout the piece.

Who is hiding in your Ceiling? I am 12 feet long,

I would like to eat your rodents, I am very strong.

Slithering and sliding in your ceiling I delight

Looking for some dinner in the pitch black of the night.

I would never eat you I would curl up in your bed,

I do not have venom I’m a friendly kind of pet.

Slithering and sliding in your ceiling I delight

Looking for some dinner in the pitch black of the night.

Carpet Python teaches unison singing, harmonic blending and ostinato part-writing. It is suitable for Primary school aged children and is available in either Unison or SA & piano version.
