Never Swat a Fly

    (DeSylva, Brown, Henderson)

Never swat a fly,
He may love another fly,
He may sit with her and sigh
The way I do with you.

Never a harm a flea,
He may have a favorite she
That he bounces on his knee
The way I do with you!

Never stop a bee if he is going anywhere,
You may be concluding some terrific love affair!
Be careful!

Don't step on an ant
In the middle of a pant,
He may want to but he can't
The way I do with you!
