Have You Ever Seen a House Fly?
Have you ever seen a housefly?
Have you ever seen a house fly
	with its gables as wings, 
	back porch as a tail,
	like a glider that clings
	to a windy gale?
Have you ever in your life seen a house fly?
	Neither have I!

Have you ever seen a horsefly?
Have you ever seen a horse fly,
	running circles in space,
	its mane in the breeze 
	in a high derby race
	over roofs and trees?
Have you ever in your life seen a horse fly?
	Neither have I!

		Have you ever seen a fire-breathing dragonfly
		with a trail of smoke in the sunny sky?
		Have you ever seen a creamy butterfly
		as it lights and it melts on a slice of shoo-fly pie?
			Have you ever seen a house fly?
				(Shoo, fly! Don't bother me!)
			Have you ever seen a horse fly?
				(Shoo, fly! Don't bother me!)
			Have you ever seen a shoe fly?
				(Shoo, fly! Don't bother me!)
			Fly away! Don't bother me!

Have you ever seen a fruit fly?
Have you ever seen a fruit fly;
	shooting star fruit that zoom
	through dark of the night,
	a banana half-moon
	in its orbit flight?
Have you ever in your life seen a fruit fly?
	Neither have I!

			If I ever see a house, ever see a horse,
			ever see a fruit in the sky, of course,
			I'll say: "Shoo, fly! Don't bother me!
			Never, ever bother me!"
