Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic, R-H lady progression

Gents star left go once around, take your girl with an arm around
Star promenade and what then? Back out and the girls sweep in
Star by the right in the usual way, 4 little ladies roll away
Gents star right, the girls turn back, just once around and do that
Allemande left with the corner lady, round the ring you roam
To meet a hank o' hair and a piece of bone, go walk 'n' talk with honeycomb
Oh honeycomb, won'tcha be my baby, honeycomb be my own

Well swing 'er neat, she's kinda sweet
Like honeycomb


FIGURE   

Gals to the middle, back to back, gents buzz around the outside track
Like a honeybee, lookin' for a home
Turn a left hand round your own
Corners by the right, it's a catch all 8, back by the left and don't be late
Ladies star 3/4 round, turn a left hand full around
Gents to the right and dosado, same little lady promeno
She's a hank o' hair and a piece of bone, go walk 'n' talk with honeycomb
Balance home and dosado
She's your honeybee, you know
Then swing and whirl a pretty little girl
Like 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
