She loves me, she loves me not
She loves me, she loves me not
She loves me, she loves me not

Well, I've spent seven days and seven nights
Trying to get sunk in this brine
Don't turn on ya water wings
'Cause I got me a pair of waterworks, right?

My insects suicide against my window
My heart goes out to those little flies
There's a bugging in my ear
But it's more of her blackmail, ham Shakespeare and her
Flies, oh, wings off flies
She loves me, oh, she loves me not
(Listen up, I'll stop when I want you to stop)

Lord, I've discovered the recipe of heaven
You get solitude and you mix with sanctuary and silence
And then bake it
Listen, I plead guilty to misanthropy
So hang me, I'd appreciate it
Witness her gate-crash my tiny hell
With some obscene tete-a-tete
If ya wanna talk to me about love and pain
See my ulcer, it'll be happy to accommodate
Wings off flies,
She loves me, She loves me not
Oh hey, Joe, another oughta do the job

Time to drown our little fire, feel free to keep the ashes
Just bye bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, now bye bye
I'll see ya in a pigs eye
I will be one, in need of no-one
On my last and deepest dive
Hey fill 'er up, Joe
I'm obliged

I am obliged
Wings off flies
Oh, she loves me, oh she loves me not

Welcome the solitary flyer
Ya see it land on the rim of my glass
It's going around and around and around
Look I just don't have the heart to let it back
I grabbed it in my paw
Snatched it up
And then I held it to my ear, you could hear it scream
Could hear it scream and scream and scream
'Til it screamed not
Hey Joe, ya wanna hear about this scream?
