Ev’ry honey bee fills with jealousy
When they see you out with me.
I don’t blame them, goodness knows, Honeysuckle Rose
When you’re passin’ by, flowers droop and sigh,
And I know the reason why.
You’re much sweeter goodness knows, Honeysuckle Rose
Don’t buy sugar; you just have to touch my cup.
You’re my sugar; it’s sweet when you stir it up.
When I’m takin’ sips from your tasty lips,
Seems the honey fairly drips.
You’re confection, goodness knows, Honeysuckle Rose.
