THERE'S A FLY ON MY MUSIC (Lew Brown / Sammy Fain / Ralph Freed) Spike Jones & his City Slickers - 1944 (vocal: Del Porter - Interruption: Larry Keating) (Opens with clarinet solo of "I dream of Jeannie with the light brown hair", which suddenly goes right off tune) (Spoken by Larry Keating) Del, old boy, what's the matter? Well listen, you know, I gave you a marvellous introduction. I built you up as a virtuoso. This is really very embarrassing, Del. (Sung by Del Porter) Pardon me, Mr. Keating, For playing' away off key I've sounded sour for over an hour But don't put the blame on me `Cos, there's a fly on my music, Looks just like a note He's in my way an' I can't play The song the feller wrote Oh, swat, boys, swat boys swat Swat boys, swat `im boys, swat There's a fly on my music Got me playin' flat He moves around and makes me sound Like Mrs. Murphy's cat. Oh shoo fly Shoo, shoo, shoo, shoo fly Shoo fly, shoo fly, shoo. Buzz, buzz, here he is Buzz, buzz, buzz, there he is Here he is, there he is Now I don't know where he is There he goes from my music What a break for me But start to smack he's comin' back With his whole darn family Oh swat boys, swat `im boys, swat Swat boys, swat boys swat (Musical Break) Shoo fly, there he is Buzz, buzz, buzz there he is Here he is, there he is Now I don't know where he is There he goes from my music What a break for me But start to smack, he's comin' back With his whole darn family. Oh, swat boys, swat `im boys, swat Swat boys, oh swat boys, swat. (Contributed/Transcribed by Bill Huntley - 2005)
