"Fly on the Wall" as written by and Miley Ray Cyrus Devrim Karaoglu....
You don't understand what it is
That makes me tick
But you wish you did
You always second guess, wonderin
I say yes but you just lose out every time

If you only knew what I talked about
When I'm with my friends just hangin out
Then you'd have the inside scoop
On what to say, what to do
That way when you play the game
Baby you can never lose

Don't you wish that you could be a fly on the wall
A creepy little sneaky little fly on the wall
All my precious secrets, yeah
You'd know them all
Don't you wish that you could be a fly on the wall

You'd love to know, the things I do
When I'm with my friends, and not with you
You always second guess, wonderin
There's other guys I'm flirting with
You should know by now

If you were my boyfriend, I'd be true to you
If I make a promise, I'm comin thru
Don't you wish that you could
See me every second of the day
That way you would have no doubt
But baby, i would never stray

Don't you wish that you could be a fly on the wall
A creepy little sneaky little fly on the wall
All my precious secrets, yeah
You'd know them all
Don't you wish that you could be a fly on the wall

A little communication
That'll go all the way
You're getting misinformation
Too much hearsay, hearsay

And what I say is
Come a little closer
And what I'm gonna say is

Don't You
Don't You
Don't You
Don't you wish you were a?
Hey!

Don't you wish that you could be a fly on the wall
A creepy little sneaky little fly on the wall
All my precious secrets, yeah
You'd know them all
Don't you wish that you could be a fly on the wall

    General CommentShe has mentioned in an interview, can't remember which, that the song "fly on the wall" is about the papparazzi... But she also said that the song could be interpreteded in many different ways, like about a guy and etc. but for her it is about the papparazzi... :)

    General CommentI really love this song, here are the correct lyrics :):)

    You don't understand
    What it is that makes me tick
    But you wish you did
    You always second guess
    Wonder if I'll say yes
    But you just lose out every time

    If you only knew what I talked about
    When I'm with my friends
    Just hanging out
    Then you'd have the inside scoop
    On what to say, what to do
    That way when you play the game, baby, you can never lose

    Don't you wish that you could be a
    Fly on the wall?
    A creepy little, sneaky little
    Fly on the wall?
    All my precious secrets
    Yeah, you'd know them all
    Don't you wish that you could be a
    Fly on the wall?

    You'd love to know the things I do
    When I'm with my friends, and not with you
    You always second guess
    Wonder if there's other guys I'm flirting with
    You should know by now

    If you were my boyfriend
    I'd be true to you
    If I make promise
    I'm coming through
    Don't you wish that you could see me every second of the day?
    That way you would have no doubt that, baby, I would never stray

    Don't you wish that you could be a
    Fly on the wall?
    A creepy little, sneaky little
    Fly on the wall?
    All my precious secrets
    Yeah, you'd know them all
    Don't you wish that you could be a
    Fly on the wall?

    A little communication
    Well that'll go all the way
    You're getting misnformation
    Too much hear'say, hear'say

    And what I say is: come a little closer
    And what I'm gonna say is

    Don't you, don't you, don't you
    Don't you wish you were a...
    Don't you wish that you could be a
    Fly on the wall?
    A creepy little, sneaky little
    Fly on the wall?
    All my precious secrets
    Yeah, you'd know them all
    Don't you wish that you could be a
    Fly on the wall?

    General Commentvery halloween ish.

    she's tasing and making fun of a guy that wants to know what she is doing every second.

    General Commentlove this song. it's about her and this guy, and they arent really dating but this guy is always nosy and curious and paranoid about what goes on in her life, and miley is saying that flies on the wall are never noticed and doesnt this guy wish he was one so he could be around and know everything thats going on.
    its pretty straightforward.

    General CommentI think Miley could have taken a lot of ideas from her experiences with paparazi for this song lol

    General CommentI agree with Candeeta4u. If you pay close attention to the lyrics and really think about it, she could be talking about the paparazzi. I love this song. It surprised me when I first heard it- didn't think I'd like it because of the lyrics but it's really good.

    General CommentI love this song, but the tune and the way it's sung kinda reminds me of Rock Lobster by the B52s...but does anyone else feel that connection?
