The Spider & the Fly - Lyrics

Will you walk into my parlor? said the spider to the fly
Tis the prettiest little parlor that ever you did spy
The way into the parlor is up a winding stair
And I have many things to show you when you're there

Oh no, no, no, no, no, said the little Fly
I'd rather stay right here and let the chance go by
Oh no, no, no, no, no, you might put me in a spin
If I go upstairs, I might never come down again

I'm sure you must be weary from soaring up so high
Come rest upon my pillow, said the spider to the fly
I will close the curtains, the sheets are fine and thin
Why don't you sleep awhile and I will tuck you in

Oh no, no, no, no, no, said the little Fly
I think I'll fly away and let the chance go by
Oh no, no, no, no, no, you might put me in a spin
If I fall asleep, I might never wake up again
I might never wake up again

The spider turned around and went into his den
He knew the silly fly would soon be back again
He wove a silky web in a corner way up high
And set his table ready to dine upon the fly
He went to his door and he began to sing
Please come back pretty fly, with your silver wing
Your robes are green and purple, there's a crest upon your head
Your eyes are like diamonds, but mine are dull as lead

It wasn't very long before our silly little fly
Heard the spider's song and came slowly flitting by
She was thinking of her eyes
And the crest upon her head
She didn't see who watched her with his eyes as dull as lead

Oh yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, said the spider to the fly
I've waited for this moment
I won't let this chance go by

He dragged her up the stairs into his dismal den
She stayed inside his parlor and she never came back again
She never came back, she never came back again

She did the spin, she did the spin, she did the spin
And she never came back
She did the spin, she did the spin, she did the spin
And she never came back
She did the spin, she did the spin, she did the spin
And she never came back
She did the spin, she did the spin, she did the spin
And she never came back
