The Lyrics

I apologize in advance for this but, I couldn't help it.

In sleep he came to me
In my repose
He seemed so strange to me
Moth-eaten clothes

And if I sleep again
Up high I'll land
The fan of lepidoptera is near
With net in hand

Fly once again to me
You pretty thing
Your power over me
Has taken wing

Your lovely symmetry
Has caught my eye
A fan of lepidoptera am I
Sweet butterfly

Those who have seen your net
Fly off in fear
We are no household pet

I want you near

No matter where I go
He's right behind
The fan of lepidoptera is there
Inside my mind

He's here,
the fan of lepidoptera
Too near,
the fan of lepidoptera

Your metamorphosis
Has me enthralled
You flit so gracefully

Wish I still crawled

And in this open field
You will be mine
The fan of lepidoptera is here
Behind a blind

Fly my symbol of freedom!!

He's there, the fan of lepidoptera


Fly to me!!


Fly to me!!


Fly my symbol of freedom!


FLY TO ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Impressive. And remember - a myth is a female moth.

Thanks Johnny D!. I was going to call this either "Frankie Grabs a Net" or "My Stalking Feat".

From the title onwards, this was a classy effort. 555

BRAVII! BRAVI! Wonderful. I like this parody. The lyrics are so pliable and fit so well with the regular rythms. Do you mind if I copy and paste into a format thing, so i could remeber it? I promise you that if I use it in one of My stories I promise too say you did it and not me. But first I need your permission. Can you do that for me pleeeeeease. Tell me at That's it.

Wish I knew TOS for this one: the it's brilliant even without, though. From the title on.

You find it hard to believe I DKTOS? I guess I never got round to seeing the show, even if it was just a little bit down the road from here.

Hey, this one's clever. I was in the mood to read a parody of this song tonight, and this one seemed like a fairly good choice to me. Nicely done.
