The Lyrics

The first parody completed in the forthcoming complete Prince The Hits albums parodies, so also the first to be submitted.
I was flying in the forest
Found flowers just 10 miles away
And that's why I am dancin'
Their location for you today
This field has no people
There's pretty flowers everywhere
Time to start some pollination
Take all the nectar with great care

So we got 2000 workers in here hitting flowers
Now, all the time
And tonight we're makin' honey and we're buzzing in the hive

I am puking while I sing this
So sue me if I do disgust
But that's how we make the honey
Regurgitate it from our guts
A bear's attacking us, we are all called in to fight
So to protect the hive I might sacrifice
My stinger tonight

So we got 2000 workers in here hitting flowers
Now, all the time
And tonight we're makin' honey and we're buzzing in the hive

Yeah
Lemme tell you somethin'
If you don't salute the Queen Bee
Don't bother coming near her throne
But if sex is on your docket,
Then you could be her perfect drone!
Yes, the Queen Bee is our Mom
Yet could drop dead anyday (ohhh!)
But until that sad time happens
We'll buzz our days away!

So we got 2000 workers in here hitting flowers
Now, all the time
And tonight we're makin' honey and we're buzzing in the hive!

(Sting it one last time!)
So we got 2000 workers in here hitting flowers
Now, all the time
And tonight we're makin' honey and we're buzzing in the hive

We're buzzing, we're buzzing!
Help the flowers grow!
(Buzzing in the hive)
Help the flowers grow!
(Buzzing in the hive...)

I found this parody quite original. Not sure about the pacing but otherwise a pretty good effort. I'll give you a 3-4-4.

Very original, I give you 555 for the effort. Very cute too. ^___^

I nearly went apiary over this. Fives for "Hive."
Larry Hensley - March 21, 2006 - Report this comment
Everyone's buzzin' about this one. 555

The pacing is bee-utiful; subbing "workers in here hitting flowers" for the "zero zero party over" threw me the first time I read it, but that scans perfectly. Love the bee's POV too. 5s.

"(Sting it one last time!)" - groan! - you really fleshed out the idea here, Agri - hmm, apiary's done, buzzin's done, bee-utiful's done....I know! this one deserves three "hives" (whoops, you did that one yourself) - 555

I can tell you're getting buzzy with this project...

(SOTM) This is very buzzworthy, but the 2000 line threw me off a bit; you could have spelled it out for the sake of pacing. And besides, Prince sings too fast for me to catch up with him anyway, so I hope you'll accept a 444 review. Prince must be very difficult to parody, but you've doen the job bee-utifully.

SOTM - There's no guarantee that it will still be there when you (whoever you are) read this, but if you're looking for more than a Midi I found the original song here:

(SOTM) Very original concept! 5 hives. =)

(SOTM) A real honey of a parody. I kept picturing this in a "killer bees" skit on SNL. Extra points for fitting "regurgitate" into a parody.

Thanks Cat, Rex, Stu, Red, Larry, Stephen, John!

Sting it one last time, eh Agrimor... Well I suppose that makes sense because as you know, bees die after they use up their stingers... Still I suppose after what you said about my Gay Cowboy parody that insted of giving you fives, I'll have to bring it down to 4's... Diss me and be b*tch-slapped, and Z-snapped girlfriend... No you didn't....

(SOTM) Oh, thanks a lot, Agrimorfee. Now you got that stupid song stuck in my head! You're just lucky the parody was absolutley brilliant, otherwise I might have to kill you!

(SOTM) Fun to follow along with the OS but my speaker kept buzzing. 555
Red Ant - April 23, 2006 - Report this comment
(SOTM) See above, and while I love this parody, "Let's Get Lazy" was IMHO your best from the whole Prince project (congrats on that too!). Maybe a faux- rince can borrow the "Bee Girl"'s suit from Blind Melon's "No Rain" video to record this. A bit of trivia I ran across a while back you might find interesting: Prince is the only performer who has consistently turned down Weird Al's requests to parody his material. This was Weird Al worthy, or maybe just weird, but weird is good.
Agrimorfee - April 26, 2006 - Report this comment
Red: I honestly chose this one because I thought more folks would be into the party-spirit of it...some were, some weren't. As to Prince, that legendary "no parody" status was one of the reasons I decided to tackle the Purple Highness. Funny thing is, as I believe I have mentioned here many a time, Al doesn't have to get his permission but does so out of professional courtesy.

Took me most of the song to sing the chorus along with the OS, which is proof of a deceptively hard OS. Nice one, Agri.
Stuart McArthur - April 28, 2006 - Report this comment
(sotm) see above - and it's almost like you had a spy on the inside (inhive?) for this one, Agri, such was the detail you were able to flesh out - painted a vivid picture of "live in the hive"

(SOTM) There's been quite a buzz about your Prince album, now I know why.

Going to do a Let It Bee sequel, Ag? Excellent stuff.

SOTM--=) I really liked this, Agri...I've had a Bee parody on my back burner for some time now...(of course mine involves me getting attacked by the Bees...but you know...)...but I don't think I need to rush to finish it...you've done the subject matter proud! =)

(SOTM) Well now, this is certainly a different approach to this OS. Got a little weird in places but I get the gist.

I read and voted again, who cares about Gay Cowboys anyways, when there's a bear attacking your hive?!
