Elegy for a fly
Elegy for a fly
passed away
and I paid

Went to the store
bought some fly paper
hung it by the door
waited for the flies to die

Oh what a show
It’s one we all know
watching lives go away

Where does the spark go
when the struggles are over
Is something lost or does it just change

You don’t have to cry sweetheart
when Mommy and Daddy die
Just look at the bugs love
They seem to take it in stride
Aye-yi-yi-yi

If it’s a crying shame
then take the blame
out to the funeral dance perchance

There’s lots of action there
The crowd is jumping
and the honey flows free

Oh the band is playing
and everybody sings

Out here in sunny prehistory
the butterflies fly happily
around around around
around around around and ’round

Out here in sunny prehistory
the butterflies fly happily
around around around
around around around and ’round

Out here in sunny prehistory
the butterflies fly happily
around around around
around around around and ’round

Bzz bzz bzz  

Elegy for a fly
Elegy for a fly
passed away
and I paid
