What snake-themed song did I hear?

On the radio I heard an old-sounding (1960s?), female-fronted pop-rock song that had the lyrics "you tremble and you shake / when he moves like a snake". What song is it?

As close as I can get to the lyrics you want is For Heaven's Sake by Thriving Ivory (SLYT). It has "you tremble and you shake" and a rhyme for "shake" but it's not snake themed. Am I getting close?

Were snakes a predominant theme in the song other than this one particular lyric?

Can you describe what "old-sounding" means?

I'm afraid that's not the song. The tune I heard had more of a garage rock sound to it, very much in this vein as I recall.

Oh, for Pete's sake. I just led myself right to it. It's She - Like a Snake.

And after all the searching I did last night. Figures.

Hey, that's a really cool song. Thanks for introducing me to it.

Yeah, it's a fun listen. Anybody know anything about the group? "She" is kind of a hopeless search term.

She aka (The) Hairem. No Wikipedia entry, though that's probably enough for one.
