The Lyrics

Another in my series of parodies based on the original movie, "The Fly" from 1959, starring Al Hedison and Vincent Price. The "Fly" character here is the tiny housefly-sized one with the guy's head.
Saw this fly flit
across my arbor
This story's real
that's no lie
Tale is urgent; must
tell you this, sir
he had the head
of a guy

That damn fly
was a guy
I looked hard; "That's really strange", I told myself
Didn't take no hard drugs today
And mostly I feel well

[brief instrumental break]

Then that fly said, "Sir
can you help me?"
then buzzed around for a while
Then he told me, "Bud
would you free me?
Spider's would eat me alive"

Told that fly
"No way, guy
might seem hard, and though I feel your pain, as well"
Then I told him, "Bud, no way, man"
He told me, "Go to Hell"

[longer instrumental break]

Told that fly
"Go and die"
'cross the yard he went, that strange thing, then he yelled
"You're a cold old f*cker, I say
I'll see your a$$ in Hell..."
Paul Robinson, "Above 'PAR' Parodies", 2007

Looks like your admiration for my piece is a solo flight, ~ ~ ~
