"Eric The Half A Bee" as written by John Cleese and Eric Idle....
A one, two
A one, two, three, four

Half a bee, philosophically
Must, ipso facto, half not be
But half the bee has got to be
A vis-a-vis its entity, d'you see?

But can a bee be said to be
Or not to be an entire bee
When half the bee is not a bee
Due to some ancient injury?


A laa dee dee, a one two three
Eric, the half a bee
A, be, see, D, E, F, G
Eric, the half a bee

Is this wretched demi-bee
Half asleep upon my knee
Some freak from a menagerie?
No! It's Eric, the half a bee

A fiddle de dumb, a fiddle de dee
Eric, the half a bee
Hoh hoh hoh, tee hee hee
Eric, the half a bee

I love this hive, employee
Bisected accidentally
One summer afternoon, by me
I love him carnally

He loves him carnally
The end

Cyril Connelly?
No, semi-carnally
Oh, Cyril Connelly

    General CommentWhat, what, WHAT !!! The worst ?
    This is the comic genius John Cleese at work. One of the best songs he ever did (although he can't sing).

    General CommentThis is a good song, but I believe Cleese is putting on some sort of voice or something. Anyway, it doesn't seem to be his natural voice.
