Queen Bee

Queen Bee

WRITTEN BY: CAMERON BLAKE

I was a stranger in a stranger’s land
In no position to leave
I was a stranger in a stranger’s land
And then the queen bee sent a message to me

She said, “I’ll move you up my darlin’
I’ll move you up as far as eyes can see
Yes, I’ll move you up my darlin’
I’ll move you up if you start workin’ for me”

I have been makin’ takin’ honey to her
I have been workin’ for free
I’ve been a makin’ takin’ honey to her
And then the queen bee sent a message to me

She said, “I’ll move you up my darlin’
I’ll move you up as far as eyes can see
Yes, I’ll move you up my darlin’
I’ll move you up if you’ll do favors for me”

You see that Maggie Magpie hangin’ around
You see her scratchin’ our tree
You see that Maggie Magpie hangin’ around
Well, will you send her to the gates of St. Pete?

She said, “I’ll move you up my darlin’
I’ll move you up as far as eyes can see
Yeah, I’ll move you up my darlin’
I’ll move you up if you’ll be loyal to me”

Oh I’m climbing, climbing up the ladder
And the bottom is a long way down

I’ve never met her but I’ve seen her stripes
From Colonel to Commander in Chief
I’ve never met her but I hope she’s nice
Because I heard that she’s a killer bee

She said, “I’ll move you up my darlin’
I’ll move you up as far as eyes can see
Yeah, I’ll move you up my darlin’
I’ll move you up to lead the colony”

Oh, I’m climbing, climbing up the ladder
And the bottom is a long way down
