"Shoo, Fly"

         
    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,
I feel like a morning star.
   
    Shoo, fly, don't bother me,
Shoo, fly, don't bother me,
Shoo, fly, don't bother me,
For I belong to somebody.
