Honey in the bee ball,
I can't see ya'll,
All here!
It's a game the kids play,
Underneath the southern moon.

Honey in the bee gum,
I can't see none,
Hey, kid!
It's the last line they say,
When they're gonna find you soon!

It's a little hunting game;
I'm gonna hunt for you
No matter where you go;
It's my specialty,
I'm gonna find you
Then you can never hide no more!

Oh, honey in the bee ball,
Now I see ya'll,
Baby!
And I don't mean maybe,
Now I'll have to hunt no more!
