Lyrics

VERSE
We’ll seek a haven of flowers and trees,
Where we’ll sip honey just like the bees;
There in the sunshine as time passes by,
We’ll live on kisses sweet, just you and I.
Two little love bees buzzing in a bower,
Feasting on the sweetness of the fairest flower,
There we will build a cosy honeycomb,
And settle in our home, sweet home.
Two little love bees
Two little love bees buzzing in a bower,
Feasting on the sweetness of the fairest flower,
There we will build a cosy honeycomb,
And settle in our home, sweet home.
Under a sky of blue we’ll live all day,
Deep in the woodland where lovers stray;
Where fragrant violets perfume the air,
And the red roses bloom everywhere.
Two little love bees buzzing in a bower,
Feasting on the sweetness of the fairest flower,
There we will build a cosy honeycomb,
And settle in our home, sweet home.
Two little love bees
Two little love bees buzzing in a bower,
Feasting on the sweetness of the fairest flower,
buzzing in a bower,
Feasting on the sweetness of the fairest flower,
There we will build a cosy honeycomb,
And settle in our home, sweet home.
There we will build a cosy honeycomb,
And settle in our home, sweet home.
