Unsuccessful male fruit-flies drink more alcohol than those which have successfully mated.

Time flies like an arrow, fruit fies like bananas, tits like coconuts?

Even a tiny being like this can experience rejection. I could have been a contender...

This needs consideration, but for starters:

I was having a drink in my favourite joint, (elbow)
When a fruit fly comes in and says "What's the point
My sex-life's shot, I'm getting none at all
I'm looking for some blood containing alcohol!"

Somehow posted that with only 4 lines. It should have been:

I was having a drink in my favourite joint, (elbow)
When a fruit fly comes in and says "What's the point
My sex-life's shot, I'm getting none at all
I'm looking for some blood containing alcohol!"
    Then I'll be gon insane,
    Leaping like a flea upon a vein
    yes, I'll be gone, gone, gone,
    Ethanol's my substitute for horn!

Good one Nigel, but my take on it is a bit more of an elegy.

I went down the Rotting Pear
Hey the fruit flies are mating
Cause I knew that she'd be there
Haul away the fruit bowl

You've got tealeaves in your hair
Hey the fruit flies are mating
Jimmy Fuitfly put them there
Haul away the fruit bowl

I'm going to make eggs with him
Hey the fruit flies are mating
Now he's found a compost bin
Haul away the fruit bowl

For seven hours I stayed quite dry
Hey the fruit flies are mating
Trying to attract that fly
Haul away the fruit bowl

Then some human took a grape
Hey the fruit flies are mating
And killed my fly, it was her fate
Haul away the fruit bowl

I'm back on the Rotting Pear
Hey the fruit flies are mating
I'm so boozy I don't care
Haul away the fruit bowl
