[Verse 1]
Honey, there’s something buzzin’ ‘round my heart,
Something that must be satisfied, My dearie,
See that Morris chair
Standing over there,
There’s some room to spare,
Now for some love prepare.
Make yourself comf’table before me start,
Tie yourself right up to my side,
Sing me that lovin’ song that goes something like umm, umm, umm, umm.

Cuddle and squeeze me honey,
Lead me right to cupid’s door,
Take me out upon that ocean called the “Loveable Sea,”
Fry each kiss in honey, then present it to me
Cuddle and please me honey,
Anchor at that kissing shore;
My honey stop, stop, stop, stop, don’t dare to stop,
Come over and love me some more.

[Verse 2]
Hon’ did I hear you say you’re going home?
Just ‘cause the clock is striking nine, My dearie,
That clock at its best,
Is an hour fast,
Eight o’clock just past,
Stay, let the party last.
Surely you wouldn’t leave me all alone,
Just for to satisfy the time,
Sing me that lovin’ song that goes something like umm, umm, umm, umm.
