THE SPIDER AND THE FLY

Updated Jun 25, 2017

HEY THERE MR SPIDER I SEE YOU WAY UP THERE ON THE CEILING
AS I AM LOOKING AT YOU WHY I GET THIS VERY FUNNY FEELING
THAT YOU’RE UP TO NO GOOD IN FACT I THINK YOU’RE TROUBLE
I THINK I’D BETTER GET OUT OF HERE RIGHT NOW ON THE DOUBLE
 
WHY MR FLY I DON’T KNOW HOW CAN YOU SAY SUCH A THING
AND WON’T YOU  TELL ME PLEASE DO YOU LIKE THE WAY I SING
WHAT’S THAT YOU ARE SAYING YOU’VE NEVER EVER HEARD ME
I GUESS IT’S BECAUSE YOU’RE TOO FAR AWAY DON’T YOU SEE
 
BUT MR SPIDER SAID THE FLY I DON’T DARE GET CLOSER TO YOU
I’M AFRAID I JUST DON’T TRUST WHAT IT IS THAT YOU MAY DO
OH NOW LOOK AT ME SAID THE SPIDER I’M STUCK HERE IN THIS WEB
YOU CAN FLY I CAN’T FLY AND OH BY THE WAY MY NAME IS JEB
 
I’M SO SORRY SAID THE FLY I SEEM TO HAVE FORGOTTEN MY MANNERS
MY NAME IF YOU WOULD CARE TO KNOW IS QUITE SIMPLY TANNERS
WHAT A STRANGE NAME SAID THE SPIDER YES VERY STRANGE INDEED
YOU MUST BE SPECIAL PERHAPS A VERY DIFFERENT SORT OF BREED
 
WHY DON’T YOU COME A LITTLE CLOSER SO I CAN HAVE A BETTER LOOK
MAYBE THERE’S A PICTURE OF YOU RIGHT HERE IN MY NEW BOOK
OH I LOVE BOOKS SAID THE FLY PERHAPS IT’S OKAY IF I TAKE A GLANCE
OF COURSE SAID THE SPIDER WHO GRABBED THE FLY AND DID A DANCE
 
THE MORAL OF THIS STORY IS IF YOU ARE NOT SURE IF IT’S SOMETHING YOU SHOULD DO
THEN I THINK THAT SHOULD TELL YOU IT MAY NOT BE A VERY GOOD OR SAFE THING TO DO
