"Honey Bee" as written by and Ben/akins Hayslip....
Girl, I been thinkin' 'bout us
And you know I ain't good at this stuff
These feelings pilin' up won't give me no rest
This might come out a little crazy
A little sideways, yeah maybe
I don't know how long it'll take me
But I'll do my best

You'll be my soft and sweet
I'll be your strong and steady
You'll be my glass of wine
I'll be your shot of whiskey
You'll be my sunny day
I'll be your shade tree
You'll be my honeysuckle
I'll be your honey bee

Yeah, that came out a little country
But every word was right on the money
And I got you smilin' honey right back at me
Now hold on 'cause I ain't done
There's more where that came from
Well you know I'm just havin' fun, but seriously

If you'll be my Louisiana
I'll be your Mississippi
You'll be my Little Loretta
I'll be your Conway Twitty
You'll be my sugar, baby
I'll be your sweet iced tea
You'll be my honeysuckle
I'll be your honey bee

Your kiss just said it all
I'm glad we had this talk
Nothing left to do
But fall in each others arms
I coulda said I love you
Coulda wrote you a line or two
Baby, all I know to do
Speak right from the heart

If you'll be my soft and sweet
I'll be your strong and steady
You'll be my glass of wine
I'll be your shot of whiskey
You'll be my sunny day
I'll be your shade tree
You'll be my honeysuckle
I'll be your honey bee

You'll be my Louisiana
I'll be your Mississippi
You'll be my Little Loretta
I'll be your Conway Twitty
You'll be my sugar baby
I'll be your sweet iced tea
You'll be my honeysuckle
And I'll be your honey bee

I'll be your honey bee

    General CommentYou be my Louisiana
    I'll be your Mississippi


    That line always makes me giggle.

    Having been to neither one of those states, I always kind of draw a blank - "You be my (random southern state), I'll be your (other random southern state)".

    What are the attributes of each that work as a metaphor for the singer (Mississippi) and his girl (Louisiana)? Could "Arkansas" and "South Carolina" have worked as well? Or, shouldn't the girl be MISSissippi? And "I" (the singer) be LOUISiana?

    Is there a special relationship, a history, between the states of Mississippi and Louisiana that I don't know about?

    A really fun, breezy, summery song, of course. It just sends me off on that tangent when I hear it.

    General CommentLast summer a girl in my school was killed in a car accident she knew everyone and was apart of the senior class this year so it was really sad. As graduation rolled around the broadcasting program at school made a video for us seniors and at the end of the video was a part for her and they played this song it was so sweet there wasn't a person who didn't have tears in their eyes. She was our honey bee and she finally got her wings. I love this song.
