When Snakes Go Crawling Home

When snakes go crawling home again Hurrah! Hurrah! We'll give them a mighty kick then Hurrah! Hurrah! The men will cheer and the boys will shout The ladies they will all turn out And we'll all feel gay   When snakes go crawling home And we'll all feel gay When snakes go crawling home   When snakes go crawling home The Mortris church bell will peal with joy Hurrah! Hurrah! To send home your darling boys, Hurrah! Hurrah! The village lads and lassies say With roses they will strew the way, And we'll all feel gay   When snakes go crawling home And we'll all feel gay When snakes go crawling home   When snakes go crawling home Get ready for the Failures, Hurrah! Hurrah! We'll give the cowards three times three, Hurrah! Hurrah! The notx wreath is ready now To place upon their shaky brow And we'll all feel gay   When snakes go crawling home And we'll all feel gay When snakes go crawling home   When snakes go crawling home Let loss and Victory on that day, Hurrah, hurrah! Our choicest pleasures then display, Hurrah, hurrah! And let each one perform some part, To fill with fear the warrior's heart, And we'll all feel gay   When snakes go crawling home And we'll all feel gay When snakes go crawling home


Created shortly after the Siege of The Tower to mock the massive failure of the Vishkanya army and their immediate retreat. Is sung in bars by human and the dwarves especially if there is a Vishkanya they don't like around as it is particularly hated by them as a reminder of the great honor and casualties the war cost them. The title and theme of the song is often used as an insult towards people of the race Vishkanya "oh go crawling home you snake." or "what are you going to do crawl home" and if they are particularly ruthless they then will start humming or singing the song at them.
