Title: Eric the half a bee
Artist: Monty Python
Album: The Final Rip Off

[piano intro]


A-one, two, a-one, two, three, four!

Half a bee, philosophically,
Must, ipso facto, half not be.
But half the bee has got to be
Vis a vis, its entity. D'you see?

But can a bee be said to be
Or not to be an entire bee
When half the bee is not a bee
Due to some ancient injury? 


C           D
La dee dee, one two three,
F        G      C       G
Eric the half a bee.
C       D
A B C D E F G,
F        D7     G
Eric the half a bee.

Am               D
Is this wretched demi-bee,
F           D       G
Half-asleep upon my knee,
C                 D
Some freak from a menagerie?
         F        G      C     G
No! It's Eric the half a bee!

C              D
Fiddle de dum, Fiddle de dee,
F        G      C      G
Eric the half a bee.
C         D
Ho ho ho, tee hee hee,
F        D7     G
Eric the half a bee.

Am                D
I love this hive, employee-ee,
F            D      G
Bisected accidentally,
C               D
One summer afternoon by me,
  F        G      C  Am
I love him carnally.

   F         G      C  Am
He loves him carnally,
F    G      C

[spoken] The End.

Cyril Connolly? 
No, semi-carnally.
[sung quietly] Cyril Connolly.
