This lively, rhythmic song gives very sensible advice to anyone who happens to catch a rattlesnake. The music builds steadily from start to finish, with the melody sung as a single line, then as two- and three-voice canons, and finally with voices together against a syncopated piano accompaniment. (1:35).
