When you're in love and you are wonderin' If he really is the one There's an ancient sign sure to tell you If your search is over and done Just catch a bee and if he don't sting you You're in a spell that's just begun It's a guarantee ‘til the end of time Your true love you have won, have won When a bee lies sleepin' in the palm of your hand, You're bewitched, and deep in love's long looked-after land. Where you'll see a sun-up sky with a mornin' moon, and where the days go laughin' by, as love comes a callin' on you. Sleep on bee, don't waken, I can't believe what just passed. She's mine for the takin' I'm so happy at last. Maybe I dreams, but she seems sweet golden as a crown A sleepin' bee done told me, that I'll walk with my feet off the ground when my one true love, I has found.
