THE HONEY I WANT (DON?T WANT ME) (Leask/Tansey/Vinnick)

I love his great big eyes
Spiky black ?n yellow hair
That son of a B, he just don?t care
Oh the honey I want, don?t want me

I try buzzing around
And flitting my wings
I?m stuck & I?m feeling the sting
Oh the honey I want don?t want me

He?s got his antenna
Scopin? every flower
Mr. Bee?s Knees
My friends say
I should just fly away
He?s a no good killer bee

I?ve been combing these streets
Crawling these walls
I ain?t getting any sugar at all
Oh the honey I want don?t want me

I need me a honeysuckle
Wildflower sweet
Royal worker bee
Drone with a buzz
Gonna earn my love
And treat me like a queen

Now I?m building my hive
At the top of the tree
No more chasing that shifty-eyed bee
Oh the honey I want, ain?t the honey for me
The honey I want just ain?t gonna be

Spoken: I don?t need that kind of honey
(His behaviour is totally a-pollen)
