The fly lyrics and chords by Foster and Allen
This song was also recorded by the ballad group Barnbrack. The second set of chords are set to the Barnbrack version of the song. Seamus Kennedy also recorded it as ''The Little Fly''.
[C]There was a litlle fly and it [G]flew into a store
And it (shsh!) upon the ceiling and it [C](shsh!) upon the floor
It [C](shsh!) upon the bacon and it [F](shsh!) upon the ham
And it [G](shsh!) upon the head of the [C]little grocer man,
Now the little grocer man got a little spray gun
And he swore that he would kill the fly before the day was done.
But before he could count from one to ten,
The little fly went (Shsh!) on his baldy head again.
The little grocer man and his little grocer wife
Swore that they would kill the fly if it meant their life.
They got themselves a hand grenade and laid down on the floor
Then they blew themselves to blazes while the fly flew out the door.
Saint Peter said "Good people, you shall be repaid.
The grocer got his angel wings and flew up to the sky
The he dove down like a bomber
And he (shsh!) upon the fly.
