Music for BeeLovers

There are a great number of songs with words, titles, and themes relating to all things honey bee. I will be collecting them now. With intent. I mean, I already make a note-to-self or call and share a new discovery with someone I think might be amused (thanks my darlin'), but I would like to amass the list and maybe one day we will be in a parade and it will be our soundtrack! I already have thoughts on how to decorate the truck but I don't think people would appreciate being pelted with pointy honey sticks... Still have some bugs to work out (forgive me).

Anyway, my current list is meager and if anyone has a good one, send me a waggle.

Here is one of the sweeter songs I have recently got hip to... but it has already been buzzing around since 1957: (now go find it in iTunes or something!)

Jimmie Rodgers – Honey Comb

(Honeycomb) (Honeycomb) Well it's a darn good life And it's kinda funny How the Lord made the bee And the bee made the honey And the honeybee lookin' for a home And they called it honeycomb And they roamed the world and they gathered all Of the honeycomb into one sweet ball And the honeycomb from a million trips Made my baby's lips Oh, Honeycomb, won't you be my baby Well, Honeycomb, be my own Got a hank o' hair and a piece o' bone And made a walkin' talkin' Honeycomb Well, Honeycomb, won't you be my baby Well, Honeycomb, be my own What a darn good life When you got a wife like Honeycomb (Honeycomb) And the Lord said now that I made a bee I'm gonna look all around for a green, green tree And He made a little tree and I guess you heard Oh, then well he made a little bird And they waited all around till the end of Spring Gettin' every note that the birdie'd sing And they put 'em all into one sweet tome For my Honeycomb Oh, Honeycomb, won't you be my baby Well, Honeycomb, be my own Got a hank o' hair and a piece o' bone And made a walkin' talkin' Honeycomb Well, Honeycomb, won't you be my baby Well, Honeycomb, be my own What a darn good life When you got a wife like Honeycomb (Honeycomb) And the Lord says now that I made a bird I'm gonna look all round for a little ol' word That sounds about sweet like "turtledove" And I guess I'm gonna call it "love" And He roamed the world lookin' everywhere Gettin' love from here, love from there And He put it all in a little ol' part Of my baby's heart Oh, Honeycomb, won't you be my baby Well, Honeycomb, be my own Got a hank o' hair and a piece o' bone And made a walkin' talkin' Honeycomb Well, Honeycomb, won't you be my baby Well, Honeycomb, be my own What a darn good life When you got a wife like Honeycomb

(Honeycomb) (Honeycomb)
