lyrics

come into my parlour said the spider to the other spider
tell me are you spider are you fly
your wings a blur of gossamer, your body black and shining
and a million tiny crystals in your eye

hey – count the legs, replied the spider, feel these threads I spin you
i'm arachnid as arachnid I could be
but let us mesh our webs together from the ceiling to the leather
sofa over there – just you and me

no, one web is enough said spider one, no two are better
only one can be the master of it all
I know, said spider two, and slowly finished biting through the threads
that held old spider one upon the wall

now, come into my parlour said the other spider. how, said spider
I am just a spider, ain't no fly
oh I'll be climbing walls forever, and I don't know even whether
I'll be stuck down here until I die

oh no, please come back here said spider two – I am so lonely
climb this thread that I have lowered in your way.
lonely, said the spider, you're a spider - we are lonely.
I don't trust your thread to hold me anyway

so the spider scuttled to the opposite far corner
where a new and shining web was soon his own.
now I don't know whether those two spiders were too clever
but I do know that each one just died alone

so come into my parlour said the spider to the other spider
tell me are you spider are you fly?
come into my parlour said the spider to the other spider
me oh me oh me oh me oh my!
