THE FLIES CRAWLED UP THE WINDOW by Ray Starita & His Ambassadors




The flies crawled up the window,
It’s all they have to do
They went up by the thousand
And came down two by two.
The flies crawled up the window,
They said we love to roam
So once more up the window,
And then we’ll all go home

(Orchestral interlude)

The flies crawled up the window
They said let’s have a race
We backed a fly called Oswald
To win and for a place
At five to one he started,
He soon got in his stride
He started crawling sideways
And he got disqualified

(Orchestral Interlude)

The flies crawled up the window
In sunshine and in rain
They do not seek for pleasure
They much prefer the “pane”
And if those flies annoy you
Then here’s what I advise
Just don’t have any windows
And then you’ll have no flies

(Jack Hulbert / Douglas Furber / Vivian Ellis)

You can find it on Boot Sale Sounds too but the link has probably expired by now.
