The Cramps - Human FlyThis is another song from The Cramps, originally released as a single in 1978 and later re-released on collections like Off the Bone and Bad Music for Bad People. The clips in the video are from Return of the Fly (1959).


Well I’m a human fly
It’s spelled F-L-Y
I say buzz, buzz, buzz
And it’s just because
I’m a human fly
And I don’t know why
I got 96 tears in 96 eyes

I got a garbage brain
It’s drivin’ me insane
And I don’t like your ride
So push that pesticide
And baby I won’t care
‘Cause baby I don’t scare
‘Cause I’m a reborn maggot using germ warfare

Rockin’
Bzzzzz

I’m a human fly
It’s spelled F-L-Y
I say buzz, buzz, buzz
And it’s just because
I’m a unzipped fly
And I don’t know why
And I don’t know, but I say

Bzzz — ride tonight
And I say bzzz — rocket ride
And I say bzzz — I don’t know why
I don’t know, I just don’t know why
