I know an old lady
She swallowed a fly
But I don't know why
She swallow the fly

- I guess she'll die

I know an old lady
Who swallow a spider
It
all the advantages of magic
No one could deny

There was an old lady
Who swallowed a fly
Your inescapable mother
Such a crazy lover

I just get
to dust 

I know an old lady who swallowed a fly 
I don't know why exactly, I guess she'll die 
My country 'tis of thee, sweet land of irony 
Spoonful
to dust 

I know an old lady who swallowed a fly 
I don't know why exactly, I guess she'll die 
My country 'tis of thee, sweet land of irony 
Spoonful
Little pink dress, hanging by her knees
Just overhead on the old trapeze
In the old tent tonight, spotlight going round
One of these nights the old
the other day
An old old lady came my way
She said, "I'll be glad when you 'come 18
I'm gonna give you a funkin' like you ain't never seen!"
I said,
these two compete on who's the star of the show
Golden legs there makes off with the dough

I read the paper there with Joe the Butcher
He said one
on who's the star of the show
Golden legs there makes off with the dough

I read the paper there with Joe the Butcher
He says one glance is all it took ya,
first row
I do believe I'd like to spend some time after the show
Now them years gone by, the barkeeps pay in cash
And them lovely ladies feed me
own flow
(Who) ain't looking for sugar no more

Simple love's hard to come by
I'm just trying to live my life, and I'm
(Trying to be a lady
love's hard to come by
I'm just trying to live a life and I
Trying to be a lady, brothers holla at me
If you love a lady who don't need a sugar daddy
Once I knew a little girl who refused to eat
She just banged her head against the floor and didn't sleep for a week
Both of her parents were
there's no one around

This is the man that nobody sees
He wears my old clothes and he looks just like me
And if he learned how to fly he'd never touch
due time
All I know
Time is a valuable thing
Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings
Watch it count down to the end of the day
The clock ticks life away
faded
I don't know why they hate us
Is it our ladies
Or our drop Mercedes
Baby, baby

I was in one bedroom, dreaming of a million
Now I'm in beach houses,
He's got a million dollar car
He's got a thirty-seven year old guitar
He's got a family who deals heroin
You're on the edge of your chair
And you
I once knew this brother
Who I thought was cool with me
Chilled out together
Even went to school with me
Fly nigga, my ace boon coon
Used to low ride
straight in the eye and said, "Huh?"

[Chorus]

Now I know a lady; she's a mighty fine lady
Got a heart of gold; she wouldn't harm a fly
She's just
Murder rap shit, I spit, for the vets who love it

By the time you read this letter
Your head gon' fly off your shoulder for lying
And I'm a be in bed
tons of ki
Old lady holding them G's, dope fiends, holes in they jeans
Magicians that can make blow green
I know his whole team, no craze, dough so
knocked and snitched too ya bitch knew time you faced you didn't hide the safe now she's fuckin in your fly estate by the fireplace my shine stay laced mind
I rap for listeners, blunt heads, fly ladies and prisoners
Henessey holders and old school niggas, then I be dissin' a
Unofficial that smoke woolie
didn't know who they were, no one had the time to ask

[Hook]

Swat team leader yelled, hit the floor
Reached in my pocket pulled my .44
Dove across
who you can't deny
Cause I'm the baby-maker, I'm the woman-taker
I'm the cold-crushin lover, the heartbreaker
So come on, fly girls, and please don't
of a bathroom they find an old lady
No clothes, half of her tongue, ear missin'
The killer had to be mad smart, he wore mittens
Even though her leg was bitten
