The Lyrics

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

BUTTERFLY:
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

FAN:
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

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

FAN:
I want you near

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

OFF STAGE VOICES:
He's here,
the fan of lepidoptera
Too near,
the fan of lepidoptera

FAN:
Your metamorphosis
Has me enthralled
You flit so gracefully

BUTTERFLY:
Wish I still crawled

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

FAN:
Fly my symbol of freedom!!

BUTTERFLY:
He's there, the fan of lepidoptera

BUTTERFLY:
Ugh!!

FAN:
Fly to me!!

BUTTERFLY:
Ugh!!

FAN:
Fly to me!!

BUTTERFLY:
Ugh!!

FAN:
Fly my symbol of freedom!

BUTTERFLY:
Ughhhhhhhhhhhh!

FAN:
FLY TO ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BUTTERFLY:
UGHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

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 darkmoonenchantment@hotmail.com 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.
