The Lyrics

i have killed a million flies...don't like 'em buzzin', i must say
yeah, i'd swat 'em down, while flyin'...i would snuff some everyday
though i never liked those critters...bees are something more worthwhile
apiary's what i started...bread and butter, in high style

well, i sold a lot of honey...in a shop just down the lane
and you can have a taste...because we're open every day
i'm sellin' quarts, i'm tellin' you...in bottles, or in jars
and at last, in life, i'm satisfied...a big bee raisin' czar

keep myself a hive...keep myself a hive
it takes a bit of time to make honey...but i'm gonna thrive

well, i love those little creatures...and there's more i plan to raise
and my bees are medal winners...in the county fair displays
i got everything i need...to keep my hobby in control
and my farm keeps gettin' bigger...ten more acres is my goal

i was told a million times...that i'd be stung and pass away
but i ain't afraid of dyin'...i get richer every day
and i'll make a million dollars...cause my hives go on for miles
and a dynasty, i've started...its highly regarded

keep myself a hive...keep myself a hive
it takes a bit of time to make honey...but i'm gonna thrive
keep myself a hive...keep myself a hive
it takes a bit of time to make honey...it keeps me satisfied

does my life get better every day ?
soon, i'll open up two shops, cause everybody raves

keep myself a hive...keep myself a hive
it takes a bit of time to make honey...keep myself a hive
keep myself a hive...keep myself a hive
all bee people...keep themselves a hive
keep myself a hive...keep myself a hive
it takes a bit of time to make honey...it keeps me satified
keep myself a hive...keep myself a hive
all bee people...keep themselves a hive
keep myself a hive...keep myself a hive
it takes a bit of time to make honey...it keeps me satisfied

Can't fault it, it's all there in pacing and comedy value. Freddy would have loved it I'm sure.
