The Fly


Well, there is always a Fly in the Ointment

There is always a Grub in the Bud,

There is always a Snake in the Garden

There is always a Stick in the Mud.


Yes, there is always a Worm in the Apple

A Joker in every Pack,

There is always a Backseat Driver

And a Catch in every Contract.


There is always a Dog in the Manger

And a Critic in every Crowd,

There is always a Hiccup,

a Flaw that is Fatal,

Or a Thumb that is Sore

and Sticks Out.


No there is nothing straight forward or simple

When dealing with Dem-oc-racy,

There’s always some Crackpot

holding things back, but

Sometimes that Crackpot is Me,

Oh it’s True

And sometimes that Crackpot is You!

No Flies on him!
