Lyric:

Well I'm a king bee buzzing around your hive
Well I'm a king bee, baby, buzzing around your hive
Yeah I can make honey, baby, let me come inside

Well I'm a king bee, want you to be my queen
Well I'm a king bee, baby, want you to be my queen
Together we can make honey the world has never seen

Well, buzz a while
Sting it then

Well I'm a king bee, can buzz all night long
Well I'm a king bee, baby, can buzz all night long
Yeah I can buzz better, baby, when your man is gone
