The Lyrics

I've been stung by a slew of those scary tails,
Wending way through my apiary.
Swarm was out to get me
'Cause I hurt the queen.
Give anointment of steroidal cream!

Got it in the face, ow! I'm a beekeeper,
Then they chased me far from the hive.
I got stung, I'm a beekeeper
Deeper and deeper barbs did drive.

I got stung by the whole nest--a million stings
Ran into a cave--escaped, I thought.
But the crew came flyin'
In, wouldn't refrain.
Endlessly they stung; whined I in pain.

Got me every place; I quit as beekeeper.
On myspace, new work did I find.
I got stung by a deceiver,
Made me believe "her"; I'll do time.
