Honey, honey, 
Oh, honey, listen to my plea

Every honeybee 
Fills with jealousy, 
When they see you out with me
I don't blame them, goodness knows 
Oh, honey suckle rose 

When you're passin' by 
Flowers droop and sigh 
And I know the reason why
You're my sweety, goodness knows 
Oh, honey suckle rose 

I don't buy sugar 
You just have to touch my cup 
I don't need sugar
It's sweet enough when you stir it up 
When I'm taking sips 
From your dainty lips 
Seems the honey fairly drips 
You're confection, goodness knows 
Oh, honey! suckle rose. 

Every honeybee 
Fills with jealousy 
When they see you out with me
I don't blame them, goodness knows 
Oh, honey suckle rose 

When you're passin' by
Flowers droop and sigh
And I know the reason why 
You're my sweety, goodness know 
Oh, honey suckle rose 

I don't buy sugar
You just have to touch my cup 
I don't need sugar 
It's sweet, stir it up
When I'm taking sips 
From your dainty lips
Seems the honey fairly drips
You're confection, goodness knows
Oh, honey suckle rose
