I knew a boy in '95
who swallowed a firefly
it perched on his lips for a moment or two

I supposed it wondered what it was like
to be words just before they're spoken
if I were a firefly that's what I'd do

oooo

is your life so bad
why are you so sad?
we're getting on just fine
is your life so bad
why are you so sad?
firefly
firefly
firefly oo
firefly oh

that poor little boy he had little sense
he opened up and swallowed it whole
down and down and down it went

and how his dim white neck glowed green
little pulses of green
it was like nothing I'd ever seen

oooo

is your life so bad
why are you so sad?
you made another friend
is your life so bad
why are you so sad?

and people came from 'round the world
to have one conversation with the boy
'cause every time he opened his mouth
it was the dawn of a new day
when the firefly finally decided to leave
the boy's esophagus
the boy's esophagus
it was a sad day
it was a very very sad day
sad day
sad day
sad day
it was a sad day
it was a sad day
it was a very sad day
it was a sad day
it was a sad day
it was a bright Saturday

is your life so bad?
so bad is your life so bad is your life so bad
bad bad
firefly
firefly
firefly oo
firefly oh
firefly
firefly
firefly
