Stephanie Hargrove Elli, Sam Cooper

He said he'd be home about half past five,
But midnight his car finally pulled into the driveway,
The kitchen door was squeakin' when he tried to sneak in,
She wasn't sleepin', she was wide awake.
And the whole town knew she was tired of his ways.

He said, "Baby, I'm sorry. I lost track of time.
My cell phone, but you know that I'm,
So happy to be home, I hate when you're alone,"
But she stood in the shadows in her momma's shawl.
Who witnessed it all? The fly on the wall.

Page one story in the local news papers,
Filled with quotes from all the neighbors,
The focus of the D.A.'s investigators,
The only one who knows the truth is the fly on the wall.

The buzz around town is he'll never be found,
She's too smart to let them take her down.
Downtown, detectives deal out the questions,
She holds the cards, but won't play their game.
With her poker face, they know that she's to blame.

repeat chorus

He was gone without a trace, there was no trial,
Insurance paid off, she bought herself an island,
With coconut palms and cabana boys, banana daquiris, she has it all,
Cause they never got the truth from the fly on the wall.

repeat chorus
Fly on the wall,
The fly on the wall.
