Richard Harris – Bee In The Bottle lyrics

The bee in the bottle is breaking his head
I caught him today I'm going to keep him 'til he's dead
No one here is watching his life
The sting is in the dying
Baby bee is looking at me
There's no air in the jar and he just can't breathe
He's got no strength now to stand on his feet
The sting is in the dying

This is all I ever needed and it's my line
This is all I ever needed and it's my line
To the actor in the corner this is my line

Nairobi told me and I kept it in my head
Nairobi called me and I left here
In the dead of the night
We have reason to believe
You've caught our only majesty
We would like for you to set him free
And fly away

This is all I ever needed and it's my line
This is all I ever needed and it's my line
To the actor in the corner this is my line

The bee in the bottle is shaking his head
I'm sorry for the times you thought I was dead
I've got no time now for suffering defeat
The sting is in the dying

We could all see in but he couldn't see out
The bottle is in danger he's filling it with doubt
It's only time before I make you mine
The sting is in the dying

This is all I ever needed and it's my line
This is all I ever needed and it's my line
To the actor in the corner this is my line
