A Fly on the wall.

Posted by Jon Gallock on October 27, 2000

I have a friend that remembers hearing the phrase, "a fly on the wall", when he was a child. It was related to a verse in a fariy tale or rhyme. He was rasied in England. However he can't recall it's name.
I'm having very little luck with this. Help.
