"The Spider And The Fly" as written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards....
Sittin', drinkin', sinkin', drinkin'
Wonderin' what I'd do when I'm through tonight
Smokin', mopin', maybe just hopin'
Some little girl will pass on by
Don't wanna be alone but I love my girl at home
I remember what she said (what she said)
She said, "my, my, my, don't tell lies,
Keep fidelity in your head
My my my, don't tell lies,
When you're done you should go to bed
Don't say hi, like a spider to a fly
Jump right ahead and you're dead"

Sit up, fed up, low down, go round
Down to the bar at the place I'm at
Sittin', drinkin', superficially thinkin'
About the rinsed-out blonde on my left
But then I said "hi" like a spider to a fly
Rememberin' what my little girl said

She was common, flirty, she looked about thirty
I would have run away but I was on my own
She told me later she's a machine operator
She said she liked the way I held the microphone
Then I said "hi" like a spider to a fly
Jump right ahead in my web

    General CommentThis was a favourite of the Yorkshire Ripper, Peter Sutcliffe. Read the lyrics again, it's quite spooky.

    General CommentLyrics pretty much speak for themselves. Song is so catchy with usual bluesy feel and grt lyrics! Find myself singing this whenever anyone says anything even having anything remotely to do with a lyric within the song lol!
