The moon glanced down ‘n wondered what the pair of them were doing
Down where the bees were hummin’ an’ the wild flowers gaily growin’
The the moon murmured ‘I feel hot ‘n fear a storm is brewing.’
Down where the bees were hummin’ an’ the wild flowers gaily growin’
She’d talked so well of things so high he started to reward her
I’ll take that off she said, ‘You’d ruin the lace that’s round the border’
Down where the bees were hummin’ an’ the wild flowers gaily growin’

White featured ‘n thin goodie goodies rush around excited
Down where the bees were hummin’ an’ the wild flowers gaily growin’
Proclaiming that the dignity of living has been blighted
Down where the bees were hummin’ an’ the wild flowers gaily growin’
But when the light is soft and dim, discovery disarming
The modest moon behind the clouds young maidens coy ‘n charming
Still cuddle men who cuddle them ‘n carry on alarming
Down where the bees were hummin’ an’ the wild flowers gaily growin’.
