Music about bees

I just came across this song:

Quite clever, probably many of you have heard it already, but I liked it a lot.

In case you didn’t get the lyrics:

Sing a song of the bees
Thousands as one
Led by a queen

The bees by the thousands, they are working together
Bringing nectar and pollen, whatever the weather
Gotta keep the queen fed, laying two eggs a minute
For the next generation, the sky’s the limit

Co-evolution we see
Flowers and bees
Nectar for fertile seeds

We pop off the top, to inspect the brood
White larvae and eggs, mean that things are all good
We try to avoid the end with the stinger
But every now and then we still get stung on the finger
Stung on the finger!

Put some ice on that sting
Cool down the burn
Easing the suffering

Got varroa and nosema, and now tracheal mites
Its a mess with all these pests, we might just give up the fight
But no disease will kill my bees, because I take care of my hives
And through the winter into April, they will still be alive
Still be alive
My bees are alive!

(Piano instrumental)

In the summer they’ll be hauling in the honey like a beast
And then in August we’ll collect it, and we’ll have a great feast
With lots of mead and pie, and honeycomb and cookies too
And we’ll still have enough to give honey to you
Honey to you

(Flute instrumental)

Sing a song of the bees
Thousands as one
Led by a queen
Co-evolution we see
Flowers and bees
Nectar for fertile seeds

When you read some other stuff, you can see how clever these lyrics are.

We have been around for 2-3 million years, bees have been around for 30 million or more. They have traded nectar from the flowers in return for bees fertilizing the seeds of the plants for tens of millions of years before we even started interfering!

And… the singer can even spell “varroa” correctly! :blush:
