Honey Bee

© 2021 CS Taber and Everett Young

You're too linear, she said, as she chewed her sun-streaked braid

I said, you're too anti-logical, you're California-made

I don't know what you mean

When you say I never ever set you free

Honey bee

 

You're too button down, she said, and she sipped her jasmine tea

I said, you're too henna tie dyed peasant dress below the knee

I don't know what to say

When you think I never ever set you free

Honey bee, honey bee

 

I never understood your smile

Fickle, fleeting, overheating

No longer than a while

I never understood your smile

Kinda quirky, sexy, perky

It could lead me down the aisle

 

You're my useful tool, she said, and she flipped me with her hair

I said, you're my vegan tofu girl, and I don't care what you wear

I think I know what I can say

When you think you want to let me set you free

Honey bee, honey bee

 

I never understood your smile

Fickle, fleeting, overheating

No longer than a while

I never understood your smile

Kinda quirky, sexy, perky

It could lead me down the aisle

 

Don’t ever go, I don’t know

Why you think I'd ever want to set you free

Honey Bee, honey bee

 

I never understood your smile

Fickle, fleeting, overheating

No longer than a while

I never understood your smile

Kinda quirky, sexy, perky

It could lead me down the aisle

I never understood your smile
