Bee Sting

Bee Sting” is a song that dates from 2001(ish). For my birthday last year, my friend Jeff Fal made this wonderful cover of it.

BEE STING- by JB

Well I was taught all about the birds and the bees

And all those other things you learn when you are young

And I learned them from magazines

Other kids, and television

But I was never ready for the revelation

Of your smile and everything that came along with it

You hit me like a bee sting

I’m having some trouble breathing

You must have triggered one of my allergies

You hit me like a bee sting

I need a shot of antihistamine

I’m having a reaction to your love

Well there is no joy in my life

The rain has stopped the play

Now that you’ve gone and left me

I guess there ain’t much more to say

I’m left here standing in the ruins of my day

I had it all but I watched it slip away

The only thing I learned from magazines

Other kids and television

Is how easily everything can slip away

While your back is turned

And you’re watching something else

You hit me like a bee sting

I’m having some trouble breathing

You must have triggered one of my allergies

You hit me like a bee sting

I need a shot of antihistamine

I’m having a reaction to your love
