[Verse 1]

C      E
I am a honey bee,
Shunned off from the colony
Fmaj7            G     C
and they won't let me in

C    E
So I left the hive,
They took away all my stripes
Fmaj7          G      C
and broke off both my wings

C       E            Am
So I'll find another tree
Fmaj7        G        C
and make the wind my friend
C         E             Am
I'll just sing with the birds
Fmmaj7          G              C
They'll tell me secrets of the world*


Am      G          C
But my other honey bee
Am             G             C
Stuck where he doesn't wanna be*
Am     G              C
But my darling, honey bee
I'll come save you
            Fm                        C
Even if it means I'd have to face the queen
   E            Am      Fmaj7  G        C
Oh Pa da bum ba dam bum Paa da dadapapa dadum

[Verse 2]
C       E
So I'll come prepared,
My new friends said they would help me
Fmaj7   G        C
get my loved one back

C           E
They say it isn't right,
The bees have control of your mind,
      Fmaj7      G     C
but I choose not to believe that

C        E           Am
So we'll meet in the darkness of the night,
      Fmaj7      G                C
and I promised I will be there on time
C        E          Am
We'll be guided by my new friends, the butterflies,
         Fmaj7       G          C
bring us back to our own little hive*


Am     G          C
Oh my other honey bee,
          Am             G             C
No longer stuck where he doesn't wanna be*
Am    G              C
Oh my darling, honey bee,
I have saved you
And now that you're with me,
we can make our own honey
   E            Am      Fmaj7  G        C
Oh Pa da bum ba dam bum Paa da dadapapa dadum

At the * there is a lead in before going to Am:
