King Bee




Well, I’m a king bee.
I decided to trace the evolution of the song “I’m A King Bee” originally written by Slim Harpo. Many bands have done it, each with their own little spin on the song. I’ve got everyone from Muddy Waters to Syd Barrett to the Blues Brothers. You might hate the song if you listen to them all in a row, but I find it interesting. It’s a good track, a good track. I didn’t get everyone, but I think I got most of the major bands- sorry Stephen Tyler, perhaps its time to die.

“I’m a King Bee” by Slim Harpo

Well I'm a king bee, buzzing around your hive

Well I'm a king bee, buzzing around your hive

Well I can make honey baby, let me come inside



I'm young and able to buzz all night long

I'm young and able to buzz all night long

Well when you hear me buzzin' baby, some stinging is going on



Well... buzz a while... sting it then...




Well I'm a king bee, want you to be my queen

Well I'm a king bee, want you to be my queen

Together we can make honey, the world ever never seen



Well I'm a king bee, can buzz all night long

Well I'm a king bee, can buzz all night long

Well I can buzz better baby, when your man is gone

I threw in a few extra Slim Harpo songs about buzzing and bees and such.
Hope you enjoy.
