THE TWO NAUGHTY FLIES.
Copyright, 1898, by White-Smith Music Publishing Co.
Words by Howard Willis. Music by Dan Braman.

There were two flies, the story goes-
And flies are bad, as ev'ry body knows-
Who sang this song with buzz and hum:
I Let's go on a time, for the summer's come."

Chorus.
Buzz! buzz! buzz! Hum! hum! hum!
Let's go on a time, for the summer's come.

One fly was blue, the other was black.
They both had spots upon their back;
They didn't give a run for any other man.
For their father, mother, brother, or their sister Ann.

Chorus.
Buzz! buzz! buzz! Hum! hum! hum!
For father, mother, brother, or their sister Ann.

So off they flew and did not stop
'Till they got inside a baker's shop;
One lit on a pie, one in the cream-cake pan.
For they didn't care a snap for the baker man.

Chorus.
Buzz! buzz! buzz! Hum! hum! hum!
They didn't care a snap for the baker man.

The blue fly hid in a doughnut hole,
Then danced a jig on a hot French roll;
The black fly sat down on a wedding cake
And licked off the sugar at a 2:15 gait.

Chorus.
Buzz! buzz! buzz! Hum! hum! hum!
And licked off the sugar at a 2:15 gait.

And when they'd sampled ev'rything
They started off upon the wing,
Buzzing a song with this refrain:
"Good-bye, sweetheart, 'till I see you again."

Chorus.
Buzz! buzz! buzz! Hum! hum! hum!
Good-bye, sweetheart, 'till I meet you again.

Now if you're inclined to be a little fly,
Just get a pair of wings and eat cake and pie;
But don't overdo it, take cure where you light.
Or you'll be in the soup When you think you're all right.

Chorus.
Buzz! buzz! buzz! Hum! hum! hum!
Or you'll be in the Soup When you think you're all right.
