RE: Like A Fly
Sounds to me like he's saying "Laura", but that's my name, so, well, the odds of me just imagining things is probably pretty high.  Smile I can't make anything out in the whisper after that. This is when printed lyrics would help decipher what they're saying, however the band probably wanted it to be a mystery.

At least on "Love Comes A-Tumblin' Down" you could hear a bit more of the part where they talk about the healing power of music...and that was printed on the album sleeve as well. Maybe there's a hint somewhere in the liner notes of "We're All Alright" as to what they are whispering in "Like a Fly"?

I isolated and enhanced the audio, and was finally able to decipher it. Pretty funny.

No let's not.  

From the great man himself and I quote ..... "it's Cheap Trick gibberish"

RE: Like A Fly
The guys in the band make up stuff about the meanings of songs all of the time, or just blow off the question with a flippant answer when they don't want us to know the real story. They're very secretive, always have been, which to me, is part of their appeal. They might be saying gibberish in the whispered part, but the first time I heard the song, that first word, or whatever they're saying right in the beginning, took me by surprise because I heard my name. That's how I interpreted it. And that's the beauty of music. We can construe it however we want.

Yeah, it's unlikely they're saying "Laura", but that's what I hear. And it certainly isn't a good thing, since whoever the person the song is about (if it is about a particular person) makes their skin crawl. Yikes!

RE: Like A Fly
So, what is it Fred?
I think the song's about Bun E. that's the face in my head when he says it makes his skin crawl. I still find it sad that after everything they all went thru together they can't get past this, you know, like adults.
Oh, well. What is it Fred? We all wanna know, now.

"I buried Bun".  Cool

From what I can tell, backwards it says "How long can you....." and then it fades out.

I like the track as well. The beginning reminds me a bit of "California Girl" from "The Latest".
