"Happy Yellow Bumblebee" as written by and Kevin Barnes....
I am a happy yellow bumble bee, I fly around the flowers and trees
And all morning long, I flutter about in the swirling breeze
And the sun is yellow like me

I am a happy yellow bumble bee, everything's so much bigger than me
But I'm not afraid, for if something gets too close,
I give them a sting that makes them howl and scamper away

No I'm not afraid, though sometimes I get lonely
Because my parents are dead and
I can't find my brothers or sisters

At night the sky looks so black and I can't find the sun.
It doesn't matter how hard I try, but when I feel like I'm covered in darkness,
And that light won't touch me anymore
I hear the cardinals singing and I know who they're singing for when I see the sun

That makes me a happy yellow bumblebee,
All my friends are beetles and centipedes and all
Summer long we laugh and we play, but we don't talk to spiders
Because they're mean and they try to trick us,
Because they want to eat us
But they'll never beat us

    General CommentAhhhh this song is just so darn cute! Before I went off to college, I painted and fired this small box with a bumblebee thumbprint on it that says "I am a happy yellow bumblebee" around the sides. Now I use it to store my pot. Whenever I get stoned I always say "where's bumblebee?"

    General Commentthis song makes me happy
    excpet for the part when he says:

    "No I'm not afraid, though sometimes I get lonely
    Because my parents are dead
    And I can't find my brothers or sisters"
