When a bee lies sleepin
In the palm of your hand
You're bewitched and deep in
Love's long looked after land

Where you'll see a sun up sky
In the mornin' dew
And where the days go laughin' by
When love comes callin' on you

Sleep on, bee, don't waken
Can't believe what just passed
He's mine for the takin'
I am so happy at last

Maybe I dream but he seems sweet
And golden as a crown

A sleepin' bee done told me
Ill walk with my feet off the ground
When my one true love I have found

When a bee lies sleepin
In the palm of your hand
You're bewitched and deep in
Love's long looked after land

Where you'll see a sun up sky
In the mornin' dew
And where the days go laughin' by
When love comes callin' on you

Sleep on, bee, don't waken
Can't believe what just passed
He's mine for the takin'
I am so happy at last

Maybe I dream but he seems sweet
And golden as a crown

Sleepin' bee done told me
When I walk with my feet off the ground
When my one true love I have found
