Shoo, Fly, Don't Bother Me - American Children's Songs - The USA - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World, Intro Image


Shoo, fly, don't bother me,
Shoo, fly, don't bother me,
Shoo, fly, don't bother me,
For I belong to somebody!

I feel, I feel, I feel,
I feel like a morning star,
I feel, I feel, I feel,
I feel like a morning star.

Sooooo, Shoo, fly, don't bother me,
Shoo, fly, don't bother me,
Shoo, fly, don't bother me,
For I belong to somebody!

Notes

The lyrics above are the way "Shoo Fly Don't Bother Me" is sung nowadays. There's lyrics are based on the original song "Shew! Fly, Don't Bother Me", written by Billy Reeves in 1869, music by M. Frank Campbell, arranged by Rollin Howard. Some of the words in the original song people would find offensive, so we chose not to post it here.
