'T's Nature

Teeny weeny little fly
Wriggling in a tree,
Here comes a hairy spider
And she wants you for her tea.

She caught you in her silvery web
You must have gone astray,
But make the most of your fading life
Cause you won't get away.

Teeny weeny little fly
You must have woke up blind,
Cause freedom is a precious thing
Once lost you'll never find.

She's coming now to suck your blood
On you she'll sit and dine,
Teny weeny little fly
Soon the sun won't shine.
