Malvina Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems  

May Flies Dance

Notes: words and music by Malvina Reynolds; copyright 1967 Schroder Music Company, renewed 1995.

The May flies in the sun.
They are living like crazy.
When their day is done
They die, they die.
They dance every minute
In a beam of the sky.
They don't care
If they're bound to die.
They are dancing.
So am I.
