Song Lyrics:
We come
In through a rip in the window screen
And the good vibrations of the washing machine
There are kids and a dog but we just can't stop
There's a ripe banana on the countertop
And if we had 'em, we'd stuff our cheeks,
There's enough for us to live on for weeks,
If you toss it out, it's too late anyway,
We're here and we're here to stay.

And we're friendly, harmless little tiny flies
And we're up your nose and in front of your eyes
Why we keep coming back you'll never know
Go! Drosophila, go!

Our full name is Drosophila Melanogaster
And you'll wish you could send us to Madagascar
The slightest morsel or the smallest drop
Is an invitation to set up shop
A hot dog bun or a week-old peach
Will be invaded like Omaha Beach
A potato chip or an orange rind,
Is a big honkin' neon sign.

And you've used enough Lysol to kill Rodan
But you missed one grape in the garbage can
Might as well give up, it's the status quo,
Go! Drosophila, go!

In genetics research, we're a plus
We've got big DNA and we breed like us
We could've had a science career, it's true,
But we'd rather hang around right here with you

We don't understand why you're afraid of flies
'Cause you're only a billion times our size
We're as big as the dot on the letter "i",
But you flail like Frankenstein when we come by,
Bring your sticky paper, your Off and Raid,
We were already dying and our eggs are laid,
You'll think you're finally rid of us when
It starts all over again!

Just abandon your kitchen when we come to play,
You didn't need those calories anyway,
Nyeah nyeah nyeah nyean nyeah nyeah nyeah, you're too slow,
Go! Drosophila, go!
Go! Drosophila, go!
Go! Drosoph-
