The Lyrics

I want my, I want my free bees

Now look at them buzzers, that's the way you do it
You make the honey on the BBC
That ain't workin', that's the way you do it
Honey for nothing and your bees for free
Now that ain't workin', that's the way you do it
Lemme tell ya, them bees ain't dumb
Maybe get a sting on your little finger
Maybe get a sting on your thumb

We got to install customised bee hives,
custom honey jar deliveries
We got to move these flowers,
we gotta pollinate these trees

(Instrumental bridge)

We got to install customised bee hives,
custom honey jar deliveries
We got to move these flowers,
we gotta pollinate these trees

I shoulda learned to be a bee keeper
I shoulda learned to wear them gloves
Look at that queen, she got it stickin' in the honey pot
Man, we could have some
And she's up there, what's that? Buzzin' noises?
She's layin' all the eggs like a machine
Oh, that ain't workin', that's the way you do it
Get your honey for nothing, get your bees for free

We got to install customised bee hives,
custom honey jar deliveries
We got to move these flowers,
we gotta pollinate these trees

Listen here
Now that ain't workin', that's the way you do it
You make the honey on the BBC
That ain't workin', that's the way you do it
Honey for nothing, and your bees for free

Honey for nothing, bees for free
Get your honey for nothing, bees for free
Honey for nothing, bees for free
Honey for nothing, bees for free
Honey for nothing, bees for free
Honey for nothing, bees for free
Ow, honey for nothing, yeah
And the bees for free
What's that?
Get your honey for nothing, and your bees for free
Look at that, look at that
Get your honey for nothing (I want my, I want my free bees)
Buzzers
Bees for free (I want my BBC)
Honey for nothing (I want my, I want my free bees)
And bees for free (I want my BBC)
Get your honey for nothing (I want my, I want my free bees)
Bees for free (I want my BBC)
Ah, honey for nothing (I want my, I want my free bees)
Bees for free (I want my BBC)
Easy, easy honey for nothing (I want my, I want my free bees)
Easy, easy, bees for free (I want my BBC)
Easy, easy honey for nothing (I want my, I want my free bees)
Bees for free (I want my BBC)
That ain't buzzing
