Honey Bee, Honey bee
Won’t you be my Honey Bee
Buzz around buzz around
Buzz around all over town
I could fly to the sky,
If you’ll be my Honey Bee
Love’s so sweet, kisses sweet,
Everything’s sweet with Honey Bee
Buzzy, buzzy, love sweet nothings
Mean so much to me little moments
Sweet hugs and kisses
From my Honey Bee
We can start a little hive
You and me, my Honey Bee
Peaches and cream and honeycomb
Is what we will live on in our happy home
We would fly to the flower chapel
If you say you’ll marry me.
Wedded bliss, sealed with a kiss
Life’s so sweet with Honey Bee
Soon baby bees will buzz around
Filling up our little hive
Life’s complete when we share
The love of our blessed lives
About this song…..
Honey was written by my wife Cheryl, it is an analogy of the song of life, using the term of endearment “Honey Bee”.
Cheryl wrote this poem several years ago when she and our daughters, Hollie and Faune were painting silk scarves and called themselves “The Queen Bees”.
After hearing her singing it around the house, the music came to me and it was perfectly suited for the ukulele. It was so light hearted and fun that our grand- daughters love to sing along , especially on the chorus.
It was an exciting day when we took them into Jay Rounds , Circle Sonics Studio. The head phones and microphones and the way they moved with the music was such fun to see! They were buzzing all night!
Special thanks to Jay for doing such a great job mixing our granddaughters, we all them “The Cousins” , voices in so well.
Also thanks to Bill Vits and Nelson Wood for their parts in making this such a fun song to listen to!
