Lyrics

Mayfly

Written By: Paul Smith

Mayfly

A Mayfly lives just one day
Then it’s life is tragically done
A Mayfly needs to reproduce
But has only one day in the sun

Mayflys need to have fun quickly
Cause he doesn’t know long it will last
He needs to find a female mayfly
Cause mating time is going fast

A wonderful moment in the meadow
A brief life can be so sweet
It’s getting dark, the day is over
A Mayfly begins to vanish in the heat

~ ~ ~ Quiet Instrumental ~ ~ ~

Now close your eyes, your time is over
The only day of your life and it was great
Close your little eyes, the time has come
To go back where you came from

Goodbye sweet mayfly, you shan’t see another day
Another sun, another blue sky
Another female mayfly

~ ~ ~ Quiet instrumental with quick ending ~ ~ ~
