Crawling
Over your window you think I'm confused
I'm waiting for the divergent wasp
To complete my current ruse
You use a plate-glass screen
To protect my chosen target
But there's an air-pellet hole
I can crawl through to you
I am the fly in the ointment
I can spread more disease than the fleas
Which nibble away at your window display
Yes I am the fly in the ointment
I shake you down to say please as you
Accept the next dose of disease

[Chorus:]
I am the fly, I am the fly, I am the fly, I am the fly
Fly in the, fly in the, fly in ointment
I am the fly, I am the fly, I am the fly, I am the fly
Fly in the, fly in the, fly in ointment

[Chorus x3]

I am the fly
