lyrics

THE LOVIN BEE
©2011 Britt Arnesen

The Lovin Bee is a nectar-hungry hummingbird in June
When the petals open find her roaming singing of her news
I tried to say don’t listen to her high and lonesome tune
But The Lovin Bee went and told that man the truth

She said I’m slow as a flower, six months from bud to bloom
And it gets cold in my shadow like the dark side of the moon
I tried to say don’t follow when I’m waltzing toward my doom
But The Lovin Bee made that man a fool

Guardrail gone, double-yellow canyon sign says 45
With the windows down pass small towns and wave hello goodbye
I tried to say don’t drive that way where the earth and I collide
So The Lovin Bee just told that man to fly

She said I’m slow as a flower, six months from bud to bloom
And it gets cold in my shadow like the dark side of the moon
I tried to say don’t follow when I’m waltzing toward my doom
But The Lovin Bee made that man a fool

Summer’s thunder steals my slumber, rainbows wake my dreams
On a bed of weeds in an open field, the wind upon my heels
I tried to say I don’t play those games your lightning won’t strike me
So The Lovin Bee just told that man to wait and see

I’m slow as a flower, six months from bud to bloom
And it gets cold in my shadow like the dark side of the moon
I tried to say don’t follow when I’m waltzing toward my doom
But The Lovin Bee made that man a fool
I tried to say don’t follow but we're waltzing toward our doom
'Cause The Lovin Bee made me love him too
