My Sisters and Me

we make lots of honey
there’s enough to share
we love to work hard
and scare away the bears
mm…mm, honey bee
whoa ho oh, my sisters and me

we buzz around looking for
pretty flowers
then we zip on home
if it starts to shower
mm…mm, we pollinate you see
whoa ho oh, my sisters and me

we sip lots of nectar
as we roam
we turn it in to wax
to build our comb
mm…mm, for our community
whoa ho oh, my sisters and me

Oh life as a bee
I’m as happy as can be
workin’ in unity
making honey
for you and me

thirty thousand of us
living in a hive
we all communicate
hey that’s no jive
mm…mm, we never disagree
no oh oh, my sisters and me

our busiest bees live
only thirty days
others thru the winter
till the month of May
mm…mm, for continuity
whoa ho oh, my sisters and me

when it get’s too crowded
in our hive
we make a new plan
to survive
mm…mm, we swarm on up to tree
whoa ho oh, my sisters and me

Oh life as a bee…

now there are a few males
that we call the drones
they don’t do much
for our home
mm…mm, but they’re a necessity
whoa ho oh, for my sisters and me

we work with our queen as she
lays her eggs
she keeps us in line with
lots of rules and regs
mm…mm, we live in harmony
whoa ho oh, and my sisters and me

now don’t you ever try
and pick me up
cause if you do
then we’re both out of luck, and the end of me
whoa ho oh, my sisters and me

Oh life as a bee…
