Paul Austin Kelly – Poor Bumble Bee lyrics

The ants all threw a party
For a Bumble Bee last night
And they served Black Beetle Pudding
Which was greeted with delight
The bumble bee did stuff himself
Until he finally swore
That unless they served him Brandy
He’d be headed for the door

[Refrain :]
Oh, Poor Bumble Bee
Such an invitation is rarely as it seems
Oh, Poor Bumble Bee
Wishin’ this was all a bad dream.

A worker ant was sent inside
To fetch the fiery stuff
He returned with half a bottle
Which he guessed would be enough
That greedy bee he drained it
And then demanded more
Till a gross inebriation
Knocked his stinger to the floor

[Refrain :]
Oh, Poor Bumble Bee
Such an invitation is rarely as it seems
Oh, Poor Bumble Bee
Wishin’ this was all a bad dream.

The ants they fell upon him then
And carried him aloft
As the bee did blather drunkenly
About his bed so soft
The hapless bee was listening
To his palpitating heart
And he hardly felt a thing
When all the ants took him apart

[Refrain :]
Oh, Poor Bumble Bee
Such an invitation is rarely as it seems
Oh, Poor Bumble Bee
Wishin’ this was all a bad dream.
