C E
I am a honey bee,
Am
Shunned off from the colony
F G C
and they won’t let me in

So I left the hive,
They took away all my stripes
and broke off both my wings

C E Am
So I’ll find another tree
F G C
and make the wind my friend
I’ll just sing with the birds
They’ll tell me secrets of the world*

Am G C
But my other honey bee
Stuck where he doesn’t wanna be*
But my darling, honey bee
F
I’ll come save you
Fm
Even if it means I’d have to face the queen

C E Am F G C
~ Pa da bum ba dam bum ba da bum pum bum ~

So I’ll come prepared,
My new friends said they would help me
get my loved one back

They say it isn’t right,
The bees have control of your mind,
but I choose not to believe that

C E Am
So we’ll meet in the darkness of the night,
F G C
and I promised I will be there on time
We’ll be guided by my new friends, the butterflies,
bring us back to our own little hive*

Am G C
Oh my other honey bee,
No longer stuck where he doesn’t wanna be*
Oh my darling, honey bee,
F
I have saved you
Fm
And now that you’re with me,

we can make our own honey

C E Am F G C
~ Oh Pa da bum ba dam bum ba da bum pum bum-/code

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
