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
Tryin' to get sunk in this brine
Don't turn on ya water works
'Cause I got me a pair of water wings, right?

My insects suicide against the window
My heart goes out to those lil' flies
There's a buzzin' in my ear
But it's more of her black mail ham Shakespeare lies
Wings off flies

She loves me, she loves me not

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 you wanna talk to me about love and pain
See my ulcer, it'd be happy to accommodate
Wings off flies

She loves me, loves me not
Oh hey Joe, another outta do the job

Time to drown our lil' fire
Feel free to keep the ashes
Just bye bye, bye bye, bye bye, now bye bye
I'll see you in the pig's 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, no she loves me not
Oh, had to

Welcome the solitary flyer
You 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 hurt a fly
I grabbed it in my paw, snatched it up
And then I held it to my ear, could hear it scream
Could hear it scream and scream and scream
Till it screamed not

Hey Joe, you know anything about this scream?
