Lyrics :

‘m a human fly
I spell (it) F-L-Y
I say buzz buzz buzz
and it’s just because
I’m a human fly
and I don’t know why
I’ve got 96 tears
and 96 eyes
I’ve got a garbage brain
it’s driving me insane
and I don’t like ___________
so push that pest aside
baby I won’t care
cause baby i don’t scare
cause I’m a reborn maggot
using germ warfare
I’m a human fly
I ______________________
I say buzz buzz buzz
and it’s just because
I’m an unzipped fly
and I don’t know why
and I don’t know why
but I say buzzzz
(rock it right?)
_________________________
but I don’t know why
I just don’t know why

Lyrics :

You’ve got a nerve to be asking a favor
You’ve got a nerve to be calling my number
I know we’ve been through this before
Can’t you hear me, I’m calling out your name?
Can’t you see me, I’m pounding on your door?
You’ve got a nerve to be asking a favor
You’ve got a nerve to be calling my number
Can’t you hear me, I’m bleeding on the wall?
Can’t you see me, I’m pounding on your door?
Can’t you hear me when I’m calling out your name?
When I used to go out, I would know everyone that I saw
Now I go out alone if I go out at all
When I used to go out I’d know everyone I saw
Now I go out alone if I go out at all
When I used to go out I’d know everyone I saw
Now I go out alone if I go out at all
You’ve got a nerve to be asking a favor
You’ve got a nerve to be calling my number
I’m sure we’ve been through this before
Can’t you hear me, I’m beating on your wall?
Can’t you see me, I’m pounding on your door?
