You can take all the tea in China
Put it in a big brown bag for me
Sail right around the seven oceans
Drop it straight into deep blue sea

He's as sweet as Tupelo honey
He's an angel of the first degree
He's as sweet as Tupelo honey
Just like honey baby, from the bee

You can't stop us on the road to freedom
You can't keep us 'cause our eyes can see
Men with insight, men in granite
Knights in armor bent on chivalry

He's as sweet as Tupelo honey
He's an angel of the first degree
He's as sweet as Tupelo honey
Just like honey baby, from the bee

I heard a tale of old Manhattan
I've never been there but I want, want to go
Standing waiting on my number
And my number's gonna show

He's as sweet as Tupelo honey
He's an angel of the first degree
He's as sweet, he's as sweet as Tupelo honey
Just like honey baby, from the bee

He's as sweet as Tupelo honey
He's an angel of the first degree
He's as sweet as Tupelo honey
Just like honey baby, from the bee
