Welcome this is our farmhouse.
We have cluster flies alas,
And this time of year is bad.

We are so very sorry,
There is little we can do, but swat them.

She didn't beg-
Oh not enough.

She didn't stay
When things got tough.

I told a lie
And she got mad

She wasn't there
When things got bad.

Chorus:
I never ever saw the northern lights. (This is our farmhouse)
I never really heard of cluster flies. (Cluster flies alas)
Never ever saw the stars so bright. (This is our farmhouse)
In the farmhouse things will be alright. (Cluster flies alas)

Woke this morning to the stinging lash
Every man rise from the ash
Each betrayal begins with trust
Every man returns to dust.

...Chorus...

...Instrumental...

Chorus until fadeout

    General Commentwho cares what some dumbass thinks.not everyone has to like phish, just like you don't have to like n'sync. People who post things like that are just trying to bring you down. just ignore them and let them be. if posting something horrible like that is what gets them off then not amount of scolding is gonna change that.
