beesI am a simple woman, with simple joys.

They’re writing songs of love, but not for bees
A lucky star’s above, but not for bees
With love to lead the way, I found more skies of grey
Than any Russian play could guarantee

I was a fool to fall, and get that way,
Heigh-ho, alas, and also lack-a-day
Although I can’t dismiss
The memory of her kiss
I guess she’s not for bees

All of bees
Why not take all of bees
Can’t you see
I’m no good without you

Take my lips
I want to lose them
Take my arms
I’ll never use them

Your goodbye
Left bees with eyes that cry
How can I
Go along without you

You took the part
That once was my heart
So why not
Take all of bees

There’s a somebody I’m longing to see
I hope that he turns out to be
Someone who’ll watch over bees
I’m a little lamb who’s lost in the wood
I know I could always be good
Someone who’ll watch over bees

Although he may not be the man some
Girls think of as handsome
To my heart he carries the bees
Won’t you tell him please to put on some speed
Follow my lead, oh, how I need
Someone to watch over bees

Let bees down easy
all your love for bees is all gone
Let bees down easy
since you feel to stay is wrong

I know it’s all over
but the last goodbye
Let bees down easy
When you pass by bees
say hello once in a while
When you pass by bees, baby
does it hurt so much to smile

We promised that we’d still be friends
till the very end
I’m begging you baby please
let bees down easy

When you put your arms around bees
I get a fever that’s so hard to bear
You give bees fever
When you kiss bees
Fever when you hold bees tight
Fever! in the morning
Fever all through the night

Turn down the lights
Turn down the bed
Turn down these voices inside my head
Lay down with bees
Tell bees no lies
Just hold bees close, don’t patronize
Don’t patronize bees
‘Cause I can’t make you love bees if you don’t
You can’t make your heart feel something it won’t
Here in the dark, in these final hours
Bees will lay down my heart and bees feel the power
But you won’t, no you won’t
‘Cause I can’t make you love bees, if you don’t

Now you say you’re lonely
You cried the long night through
Well, you can cry bees a river, cry bees a river
Bees cried a river over you

Now you say you’re sorry
For being so untrue
Well, you can cry bees a river, cry bees a river
Bees cried a river over you
