"Shoo Fly Don't Bother Me" is a song written by T. Brigham Bishop in 1869, which makes this song public domain. He wrote the song while involved in the American Civil War.

     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 like a morning star,
I feel, I feel, I feel like a morning star.

Oh, shoo, fly, don't bother me,
Shoo, fly, don't bother me,
Shoo, fly, don't bother me,
For I belong to somebody.

The above is actually just the chorus of the original tune. The full song uses words that are considered offensive, particularly the widespread sprinkling of the "n-word" throughout the ditty.
