"I Am the Fly" as written by and Lewis Newman....
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

I am the fly, I am the fly, I am the fly, I am the fly
Fly in the, fly in the ointment
I am the fly, I am the fly, I am the fly, I am the fly
Fly in the, fly in the ointment

I am the fly, I am the fly, I am the fly, I am the fly
Fly in the, fly in the ointment
Yes, I am the fly, I am the fly, I am the fly, I am the fly
Fly in the, fly in the ointment

I am the fly, I am the fly, I am the fly, I am the fly
Fly in the, fly in the ointment
Yes, I am the fly, I am the fly, I am the fly, I am the fly
Fly in the, fly in the ointment

I am the fly

    General Comment‘I am the Fly’, which became a signature tune of sorts, is another rehearsal of the 'outsider' theme, a supposedly defiant overturning of mainstream culture’s dismissing of the strange as the less-than-human.

    General CommentThis concerns the death of the initial uk punk rock movement and is suitably frazzled and deranged enough to act as a stepping stone from punk to post or progressive punk.

    My OpinionI don't suppose it is about it, but it always reminds me of the story Metamorphosis, by Kafka.
