The beekeeper's wife
She wore a red cross across her chest and dressed in white
She could cure all the pain in a way you can't prescribe
And I swear she was the only thing keeping those bees alive

But I could hardly understand
Until her wings were buzzing

The beekeeper's wife
She took off her dress and walked him out of the hive
And in her naked hand was a rusted can of pesticide
She said, "I'm sorry but all of these bees have got to die"

But I could hardly understand
The words she was mumbling

She is a bear
She is a bear
She is a bear and I'm so scared
She is a bear
She is a bear
Once a nurse, then a wasp, and now just a bear

With her claws she dug all of the honey from my lungs
She is a bear
She is a bear
She is a bear but I'm not scared
