I wrote this song for my friend Gu who called me in a panic one day after being bit by a bee-on a bus.

Bee On The Bus (Gladstone)

The windows were open with spring in the air
My beauty walked on after paying her fare
And paid she no mind, a bee in her hair
The seats were all taken but one by the stair

Cut at the knee commanding a stare
The season anew a skirt she did dare
With hands at her sides, she bent for the chair
And sat on the bee as it took to the air

A bee bit my ass on the bus
A bee bit my ass
A bee bit my ass
A bee bit my ass!!!!

My beauty lept up a curse thrown about
Taken aback at what came from her mouth
The passengers shocked it was beyond doubt
Too late for the bee who’s life had gone out


Repeat first verse
