Just like a bee rushing to a comb of honey
Why can't you see you look so very funny
You worry yourself sick till you're blue in the face

Relax and sleep, tomorrow isn't leaving
And counting your sheep won't relieve you from this grieving
You worry yourself sick till you're blue in the face

But you'll make ends meet I know you will so please pull up a chair
Take your time the world's not going anywhere
Honey, you worry yourself sick till you're blue in the face

Blue in the face
'Cause you're always in a hurry
Blue in the face
'Cause you always tend to worry
You're just like a honey bee, you panic, you sting, then you die

It's just like you to fret like you do
So take the afternoon and maybe someday soon
You won't have to worry yourself sick till you're blue in the face

But you'll make ends meet I know you will so please pull up a chair
And take your time the world's not going anywhere
Honey, you worry yourself sick till you're blue in the face

Blue in the face
'Cause you're always in a hurry
Blue in the face
'Cause you always tend to worry
You're just like a honey bee, you panic, you sting, then you die
You're just like a honey bee Zap!...

Oh, when you're in a state of mind they call anxiety
And you find it very necessary to pull out your hair
Don't be discouraged
Oh, honey have courage
Don't worry yourself sick till you're blue in the face
Like always you worry till you're blue in the face
Honey why worry yourself sick till you're blue in the face

You're always in a hurry
Blue in the face
You always tend to worry
'Cause you're just like a honey bee, you panic, you sting, then you die
Just like a honey bee

Blue in the face
You got no time to waste
Slow down the pace
You're turning blue, blue, blue

Blue in the face
You got no time to waste
Slow down the pace
You're turning blue

    General Commenti remember when i got this cd a couple years ago this was my absolute favorite song, i would dance around to it and i always had it on repeat... it reminded me of the little mermaid for some reason. i think it's one of my less favorite tracks on this album now but i always remember feeling all bubbly and happy listening to this when i first got the cd

    General CommentI love the lyrics and the strange melody. I think the part where Gwen says zzzZAP! is cute.

    The meaning of the song is pretty obvious. It's about someone who worries too much! They run around trying to hold everything together, but it's more beneficial to cross certain bridges when you come to them. Perhaps a lot of the members of No Doubt felt this way back then. They worked hard to succeed. Maybe the song is about one or all of them.

    General CommentA friend asked me to find her this song.

    I have a funny feeling she's trying to tell me something.

    You think?
