You don't understand what it is
That makes me tick
But you wish you did

You always second guess, wonderin'
I say yes but you just lose out every time

If you only knew what I talked about
When I'm with my friends just hangin' out
Then you'd have the inside scoop
On what to say, what to do
That way when you play the game
Baby you can never lose

(Chorus:)
Don't you wish that you could be a fly on the wall
A creepy little, sneaky little fly on the wall
All my precious secrets, yeah
You'd know them all
Don't you wish that you could be a fly on the wall


You'd love to know, the things I do
When I'm with my friends, and not with you
You always second guess, wonder if
There's other guys I'm flirting with
You should know by now

If you were my boyfriend, I'd be true to you
If I make a promise, I'm comin' through
Don't you wish that you could
See me every second of the day
That way you would have no doubt
That baby I would never stray

(Chorus:)
Don't you wish that you could be a fly on the wall
A creepy little sneaky little fly on the wall
All my precious secrets, yeah
You'd know them all
Don't you wish that you could be a fly on the wall

A little communication
That'll go a long way
You're getting misinformation
Too much she say, he say

And what I say is
Come a little closer
And what I'm gonna say is

Don't Ya!
Don't Ya!
Don't Ya
Don't you wish you were a...
Hey!

(Chorus:)
Don't you wish that you could be a fly on the wall
A creepy little sneaky little fly on the wall
All my precious secrets, yeah
You'd know them all
Don't you wish that you could be a fly on the wall

    First of all, she said the inspiration for this song was the media and how they are making up untrue stuff about her.
    Second of all, her name was Destiny Hope Cyrus, she changed it because everyone already called her Miley, and she wanted it to be legal. She has two sisters, Brandi and Noah, and two brothers, Braison and Trace, and also a half brother, Christopher. And her mom's name is Tish. I don't even know her and I know all this, so even if that person answered those questions, it wouldn't be proof. Just saying;)
    I doubt Miley comes on these boards in the first place, haha(:

    I love this song! It is one of my fav. Songs! I think it means, like, well, I don't know, but I really like it. I mean, I can't put into words. It's, like, I guess, when you wanna say something to someone, but you can't put it into words. Like, telling your mom you failed test, but your trying to process the word, but they won't come out. You know? It's kinda like that. I really think if this was a question on a test everyone could answer it, but I can't really do it here. It's like kinda a trick question. You know? Well, I think it means she can't get away from all the fans and papparazzis and stuff, so she made this song saying that.
