Spider and the Fly (The)

Sittin; thinkin; sinkin; drinkin;

Wondrin what Ill do when Im through tonight.

Smokin; mopin; maybe just hopin

Some little girl will pass on by

I dont wanna be alone, and I love my girl at home

I remember what she said.

She said, My, my, my Dont tell lies. Infidelity in your head.

My, my, my! Dont tell lies. When you done your show, hit the bed.

And dont say Hi like a spider to a fly A-jump right ahead in your bed.

So I sit up; fed up; go down; whore round;

Down to the bar in the place Im at.

Sittin; drinkin; superficilly thinkin

About the rinsed-out blonde on my left

Then I said, Hi., like a spider to a fly,

Remembring what my little girl said.

She was nifty, shifty; she looked about fifty!

I woulda run away, but I was on my own.

She told me, later, she was a machine-operator.

She said I like the way I held the microphone.

And then I said Hi., like a spider to a fly;

A-jump right ahead in my web.
