Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Well it's a darn good life and it's kinda funny
How the Lord made the bee and the bee made the honey
And the honey bee lookin' for a home
And they called it a honeycomb

Allemande left with your left hand, dosado with your partner man
Allemande left get-a one more time, hot dog and you weave the line
I said a honeycomb won't you be my baby, said a honeycomb be my own
Why swing and whirl with the pretty little girl
And you promenade get around the world
Said a honey won't you be my baby, said a honeycomb be my own
It's a darn good life when you gotta' good wife like a honeycomb


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Well a 1 & 3 (2 & 4) you gotta square thru and a get four hands around you do
Meet a corner with a dosado, one time and around you go
Swing thru to the rhythm of the band,
boys run right when you get there man
Bend your line of four and a right and left thru like you did before
Flutter wheel across that ring and then you slide thru
Why swing and whirl with the pretty little girl
And promenade get around the world
Said a honeycomb won't you be my baby, said a honeycomb be my own
It's a darn good life when you gotta' good wife like a honeycomb


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

All four ladies chain the ring
Roll away and circle left I sing
All four ladies gotta rollaway
Circle left get round that square
Allemande left geta one more time, hot dog and you weave the line
I said a honeycomb won't you be my baby, said a honeycomb be my own
You swing and whirl with the pretty little girl
And you promenade get around the world
Said a honeycomb won't you be my baby, said a honeycomb be my own
It's a darn good life when you gotta' good wife like a honeycomb

Honeycomb
 
 

Well it's a darn good life, and it's kinda funny
How the Lord made the bee, and the bee made the honey
And the honey bee looking for a home
And he called it a honeycomb

And they roamed the world and they gathered all
Of the honey into one sweet ball
And the honeycomb from a million trips
Made my baby's lips

Oh honeycomb, won't you be my baby
Well honeycomb, be my own
Got a hank of hair and a piece of bone
They made a walking, talking honeycomb
Well honeycomb, won't you be my baby
Well honeycomb, be my own
What a darned good life when you've got a wife
Like honeycomb

And the Lord said now that I've made a bee
I'm gonna look all around for a green, green tree
And he made a little tree and I guess you heard
Oh, then well he made a little bird

And they waited all around till the end of spring
Getting every note that the birdies sing
And they put 'em all in to one sweet tone
For my honeycomb

Oh honeycomb, won't you be my baby
Well honeycomb, be my own
Got a hank of hair and a piece of bone
They made a walking, talking honeycomb
Well honeycomb, won't you be my baby
Well honeycomb, be my own
What a darned good life when you've got a wife
Like honeycomb

And the Lord said now that I've made a bird
I'm gonna look all around for a little old word
That sounds about sweet like a turtledove
And I guess I'm gonna call it love

And they waited all around till the end of spring
Getting every note that the birdies sing
And they put 'em all in to one sweet tone
For my honeycomb

Oh honeycomb, won't you be my baby
Well honeycomb, be my own
Got a hank of hair and a piece of bone
They made a walking, talking honeycomb
Well honeycomb, won't you be my baby
Well honeycomb, be my own
What a darned good life when you've got a wife
Like honeycomb

Oh honeycomb, won't you be my baby
Well honeycomb, be my own
Got a hank of hair and a piece of bone
They made a walking, talking honeycomb
Well honeycomb, won't you be my baby
Well honeycomb, be my own
What a darned good life when you've got a wife
Like honeycomb

Lyrics by Bob Merrill.
Recorded by Jimmie Rodgers.
