Honey is for bees silly bear,
besides there's jelly beans everywhere.
It's not what it seems in the land of dreams.
Don't worry your head just go to sleep.
It doesn't matter how you feel,
life is just a Ferris wheel,
its always up and down, don't make a sound.

When you wake up the world will come around,
when you wake up the world will come around.

It's just the sweet weather and the peacock feathers in the morning it will all be better.
It's not what it seems in the land of dreams.
Don't worry your head just go to sleep.

When you wake up the world will come around,
when you wake up the world will come around.

Honey is for bees silly bear,
besides there's jelly beans everywhere.
It's not what it seems in the land of dreams,
don't worry your head just go to sleep.

    General CommentThis song is brilliant, and just as ambiguous as any other FOB song.

    "Honey is for bees silly bear, besides there's jellybeans everywhere"

    I think it means that just because someone else has something great (honey), doesn't mean that is what you have to have, it is not the only good thing, there are so many other great things out there to choose from (jellybeans)
    I guess the bear is Bronx

    Most of the rest is pretty obvious like the ferris wheel thing

    "When you wake up the world will come around"

    I think it means if the world isn't going the way you want it to, all you have to do is wake up and try again and it will "come around", don't give up.

    I have never heard life lessons put so well for a child, Bronx is the luckiest kid.

    General CommentPatrick's voice is so gorgeous in this. You can just imagine it being sung to a little kid before they go to sleep. I would sing it to my kids! It's so sweet and simple. The sort of thing little kids would laugh at but understand better than most people. Love it!

    General Comment^^ on some CD players, usually like, a radio. not on the computer or anything, if you rewind while playing the first song, it'll go back and say -0:01 and it'll count up, like it's rewinding number "1", but it's really lullabye.

    General CommentI do love this song terribly.
    I know what I am falling asleep to tonight :)

    "it doesn’t matter how you feel
    life is just a ferris wheel
    it’s always up and down
    don’t make a sound
    when you wake up, the world will come around
    when you wake up, the world will come around"

    Awww.
