A Flea And A Fly

Alternative Lyrics & Related Songs

They fly to the flue in this version

A flea and a fly
Flew up in a flue.
Said the flea, "Let us fly!"
Said the fly, "Let us flee!"
So they flew through a flap in the flue.

A flea and a fly in a flue
Said the flea "Oh, what shall we do?"
Said the fly "Let us flee"
Said the flea "Let us fly"
So they flew through a hole in the flue.

A fly and a flea in a flue were imprisoned. Said the fly, let us flee Said the flea, let us fly So together, the flew through a flaw in the flue.

There was a flea and a fly on a flaw in a flue. Said the flea to the fly, what shall we do? Said the fly to the flea, there's a flaw in the flue. So the flea and the fly flew out the flaw in the flue.

These are the definitive words to this limerick. The meter is perfect (line 2 is "stranded", not "stuck"), and there is rhyme where it should be (lines 3 & 4 are "flee" and "flea"). I usually don't approve of using the same word to rhyme with itself (lines 1 & 5 are "flue"), but this limerick is so clever, I excuse it as poetic license. A flea and a fly in a flue Were stranded so what could they do Said the fly Let us flee Let us fly said the flea So they flew through a flaw in the flue
