The Lyrics

This is based on the 1st version of the movie, "The Fly", which came out in 1958 and starred Al (David) Hedison & Vincent Price. Actually, it's just based on the very end scenes of the movie...I still remember when I saw this at the Wiltern Theatre in 1959My older brother, Peter took me to see a Friday night Double-Horror Movie Special, "The Fly" & "The Horrors of The Black Museum"man, freaked my little 9-year-old ass outBTW – "The Fly" was adapted by screenwriter James Clavell ("Shogun"), from George Langelaan's short story.
{Just before the music starts, in a tiny, tinny, odd, high-pitched voice}

~ ~ hel-ll-lp me-eee!!! ~ ~
~ ~ hel-ll-lp me-eee!!! ~ ~
~ ~ hel-ll-lp me-eee!!! ~ ~

Just this morning I saw this fly
Except he had the head of a guy
He said, "Help me, I'm stuck here in this web
If I don't get free soon I'll be dead"

Well, I wanted to help that guy
But really, I am not that fond of flies
If I free him, he might buzz by sometimes
I don't like fli-ii-iies
that's no li-ii-iie, Yeah

I sure would like to help you, dude
certainly this will seem quite rude
Mutant freak; half-guy and half-fly-yy

He implored me, "Come on, please, guy
when that spider returns on me he will dine
he'll devour me; Yes, I will end up his mea-eal-eall
and I don't think I will like how that feels

Man, that blows; it's screwed (Yes)
I sure could use some help from you here, dude
Yes, I'm hoping that you'll have a change of mind
I'm in a bi-ii-ind - Yeah
soon I'll di-ii-ie – Hey, Yeah

Don't leave me in this spider's web
if you do I will end up dead
Free me and away I will fly-yy-yy"

{Instrumental break}

[The next part is sung to the notes of the lead guitar solo]

(trapped)
(I am)
(Oh, Sh*t)
(now I'm really in a)
(jaah-ham)
(when)
(spider ar-rives)
(he)
(will end my life)
(I'm)
(ther-ere for dinner)
(right next to his fries)

Well, I thought this through
You know, there's really only one thing that I can do
Yeah, hoist a big rock above my head real high
Then "smooosh" that flyyy-eye-eye, Yeah
Say, "Good-bye-eye-eye"
fly-guy

Sorry, fly, but you must be 'smoooshed'
please do not take this pers'nally, dude
'Smooosh' you with this rock; stop your cri-ii-ii-iies

{Loud crashing sound – narrator is making a "rock-fly-sidewalk" sandwich}

nice job....my childhood was also disturbed by that movie...5s

Thanks, guys...Adagio -- it's actually a very good movie for the "sci-fi/horror" genre...I just read that in the scene I'm using for my piece that the two main actors in it (Price and Herbert Marshall) did not look at each other when they spoke their lines...neither of them could keep a straight face over what they were saying...however, let me note that Price, who at times would really "camp up" some of his roles in movies with really outlandish plots, played this role very straight and is very good in it. Also, if you are at all squeamish you should avoid David Cronenberg's 1986 remake with Jeff Goldblum & Geena Davis...it's an excellent movie - very well done, but REALLY has some truly icky, graphic scenes...

Dktos, but I know this great old film...It was freaky...like your story..fives
Paul Robinson - October 10, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks, AFW...yeah, "The Fly" WAS a very fine movie...and for the era it was made in the Special effects (particularly the scene where the screaming wife got her first look at what her husband looked like...her terrified screams amplified through the fly's hearing apparatus & viewed through the multiple lenses in a fly's visual configuation) were really quite good.

Flies, err, um, fives. I couldn't get this line to scan though: "when that spider returns on me he will dine", seemed to have a few extra syllables but I don't know this song by heart and the 2 disc set I have may contain a slighty different version of this song.

Here's Three fives, if that I'll help.
Paul Robinson - October 11, 2005 - Report this comment
Red, thanks for looking in...in the OS that line is "But Friday I've got travelling on my mind" When sung as "when that spider re-turns on me he will dine" You have to say "returns" a certain way to make it work. But I did sing (and record) my parody over the OS and if you will trust me on that I can tell you that it does fit...Lionel - Thanks, it does help...

Paul, what fantastic ideas you have! Even Lindsey Buckingham would get a kick out of this one. Fives all around.

Thanks again, Stephanie, that's some high praise...yeah, this one just "buzzed" right into my mind when I was thinking about trying to use some of the songs from this Fleetwood Mac album...after I came up with that 1st line the whole thing mostly just kind of fell into place - well, not exactly...I had to work on the pacing and such...and add the extra lyrics to the guitar solo part also...but the story-line was there from the movie sequences - just had to figure out how to say them in the song structure. I've had a lot of fun working with this album so far, I'm still looking at the remaining songs and then maybe at "Rumours"...after I get the my work-related projects caught up, that is....
