The Lyrics

Working every night at a restaurant in town
That failed its health inspection
People wave their hands so that I’ll come around
I know that I’ll hear a grumbling in my ear
Waiter there’s a fly
There’s a fly in my soup, waiter
“Yes, the chef once was a tailor”
Waiter there’s a fly
There’s a fly in my soup, waiter
“Hope that he’s a water skater boi”

Sometimes give the answer, “One is all I see -
Two or more cost extra, you get this one for free”
Then I move along, another table calling me
Where I hear again the words that just make me grin
Waiter there’s a fly
There’s a fly in my soup, waiter
“What are you – a protein hater?”
Waiter there’s a fly
“Well I’ll dry him out, then later
Put him in the pepper grater”

Waiter there’s a fly

“Please don’t say it loud so that others can hear
Or everyone will want one.”
Then I tell a dude who gives me a sneer
“Better this way, guy, than having soup on your fly”
Waiter there’s a fly
There’s a fly in my soup, waiter
“Yes the ants are running late, sir”
Waiter there’s a fly
There’s a fly in my soup, waiter
“Yes and don’t forget – we cater”

Waiter there’s a fly
“Try the shoofly pie”

Waiter there’s a fly
There’s a fly in my soup, waiter
“Yes, I’ll bring the others later”
Waiter there’s a fly
“Wait until you see what is under your steak”
Waiter there’s a – eeew!

"What's that fly doing in my soup?" "Looks like the backstroke". Great job with my old lines. Just as long as it's not Turtle soup. -- TT.

Thanks Matthias, JB, JW, MM, TJC, and Henny Turtle. And pay no attention to that fly in your soup - he's just trying to upstage the roach in your tea.

Well, I'm very glad to see two great Sugar Ray parodies on the same day, I'll save the in depth analysis I normally do for my contest comment, but safe to say, superb as usual.

DKTOS, but who cares? You're writing is consistently on the mark, Rex, and this was no exception. 555

You got rid of a lot of the background vocals done by that crazy Jamacian guy, but this way it allows you to focus in on all of those great "Fly" jokes.

Thanks BAD, KR, and Matthias. BTW Matthias, SR recorded a version of Fly without the crazy Jamaican guy, so I felt ok leaving those lyrics out.

(Artistry) I've never had a fly in my soup - there was a bug in my salad once, but then it woudn't rhyme. Brilliant job as always!

(Artistry) Reminds me of the time I got drunk while I ate at a restaurant. I didn't zipper myself back up when I returned from the restroom, and then I dropped my entire bowl of clam chowder on my lap. I had to say ... "Waiter, there's a soup in my fly!"

(Artistry) Well. . .it was very creative, imagery was not hard to see. "“Well I’ll dry him out, then later Put him in the pepper grater”" was my favorite line. . .It's very original, and follows the rhyme scheme fairly well.

(Artistry) Mmmmm fly soup. Protein is good for you. Excellent job, Rex.
